Several new stripe rust pathogen races emerged in the wheat growing regions of China in recent years.  These races were virulent to most of the designated wheat seedling resistance genes.  Thus, it is necessary and worthwhile to identify new valuable resistant materials for the sake of diversifying resistant sources, pyramiding different resistance genes and achieving durable resistance.  Here, we identified the resistance gene, temporarily designated as YrH9017, in wheat-Psathyrostachys huashanica introgression line H9017-14-16-5-3.  A total of 146 F2 plants and their derived F2:3 families in a cross of Mingxian 169
and H9017-14-16-5-3 were used to evaluate seedling stripe rust response and as a mapping population.  Finally, we constructed a genetic map including eight simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers and expressed sequence tag (EST) markers.  YrH9017 was located on the long arm of chromosome 2A and closely linked with two EST-sequence tagged site (EST-STS) markers BG604577 and BE471201 at 1.3 and 1.8 cM distance, respectively.  The two closest markers could be used for marker-assisted selection of YrH9017 in breeding.
