We describe an approach to estimate and test hypotheses about the number of genes that differ between the donor parent and the recurrent parent when using the inbred-backcross breeding procedure The method is used to estimate the number of genes determining resistance of common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) to common bacterial blight incited by Xanthomonas campestris pv. phaseoli (Smith) Dye beans.
