    This work reports a quick method that integrates RH mapping and genetic mapping to map the dominant Mov-1 locus to a 1.1-Mb physical interval with a small number of candidate genes. Bread wheat is an important crop for global human population. Identification of genes and alleles controlling agronomic traits is essential toward sustainably increasing crop production. The unique multi-ovary (MOV) trait in wheat holds potential for improving yields and is characterized by the formation of 2-3 grains per spikelet. The genetic basis of the multi-ovary trait is known to be monogenic and dominant in nature. Its precise mapping and functional characterization is critical to utilizing this trait in a feasible manner. Previous mapping efforts of the locus controlling multiple ovary/pistil formation in the hexaploid wheat have failed to produce a consensus for a particular chromosome. We describe a mapping strategy integrating radiation hybrid mapping and high-resolution genetic mapping to locate the chromosomal position of the Mov-1 locus in hexaploid wheat. We used RH mapping approach using a panel of 188 lines to map the Mov-1 locus in the terminal part of long arm of wheat chromosome 2D with a map resolution of 1.67 Mb/cR1500. Then using a genetic population of MOV × Synthetic wheat of F2 lines, we delineated the Mov-1 locus to a 1.1-Mb physical region with a small number of candidate genes. This demonstrates the value of this integrated strategy to mapping dominant genes in wheat.
