The relationship between genetic and cytogenetic maps of pea. II. Physical maps of linkage mapping populations

Genome. 1997 Oct;40(5):755-69. doi: 10.1139/g97-798.


A cytogenetic analysis of inbred lines that have been used to generate genetic maps of pea is presented. Mitotic karyotyping of the inbred lines and meiotic studies of their F1 hybrids have been used to test the prediction that structural differences exist between the parental lines. The results are not compatible with the previously published molecular data. A reordered and updated linkage map of pea is presented that is consistent with the cytogenetic data.
