The intraspecific linkage map of chickpea. The intraspecific linkage map of chickpea based on RILs of C. arietinum (ICCV-2) × C. arietinum (JG-62) was generated with STMS markers using JoinMap version 4.0. The name of the linkage groups, the number of mapped markers and the Average Marker Density (DAv) is mentioned at the top of each LG. Newly mapped markers (NCPGR-series and H-series) are shown in blue colour and the morphological marker (double-podding, sfl) is shown in a shaded box. Arrows represent the markers showing distortion.
