USGA Summary Points:A mapping population of 175 individuals has been developed crossing cold-tolerant cultivar 'Meyer' and cold susceptible cultivar 'Victoria'. The mapping population was established in June 2014 in Laurel Springs, NC, and West Lafayette, IN in 3'x3' plots in three replications in randomized complete block design (RCBD). Additionally, the population was replanted at these locations in June 2015 for secondary evaluations during the 2015-2016 winter season. The mapping population was evaluated for winter injury establishment, and turf quality pre- and post-freezing in 2014-2016. Significant variation in all four traits was observed in the population, including ten lines that performed as well as or better than Meyer in terms of winter injury across all environments. A total of 2,463 DNA markers were used to construct a high-density genetic map of the zoysiagrass genome. The map covers all 20 chromosomes and is the first high density genetic map of the Zoysia japonica genome. Using the genetic map and field data, seven regions of interest where QTL for three or more of the traits evaluated co-located were found on chromosomes 8, 11, and 13. These genomic regions and markers linked with them will be valuable in implementing marker assisted selection for winter hardiness in a zoysiagrass breeding program.
