  1. Data are from mapping populations MP1 [20] and MP2, based on analysis of 121 shared marker loci. Markers polymorphic in both MP1 and MP2 were used to match and align homoeologues based on marker loci that were single locus homoeologue-specific (SL-HS). Additional support for homoeologue matching was provided by comparison of allele size of non-single locus shared marker loci. Of the allele size loci, some indicated an alternative matching that was a mismatch to the maximum parsimony allele-size homoeologue alignment, and others did not provide conclusive support for either alignment combination and were designated as ambiguous. In all cases, homoeologue alignment based on shared marker allele size was corroborated by the SL-HS alignment data.
