Carrot genetic linkage map of the 70349 mapping population. Linkage groups were oriented and named according to their corresponding physical chromosomes (markers in blue indicate anchoring markers with known chromosome location) . Markers in red corresponds to the phenotypic loci controlling purple pigmentation in root (P
) and acylation of root anthocyanins (Raa1). Bars to the right of the linkage groups represent support intervals of QTL for individual anthocyanin pigments (Cy3XG, Cy3XGG, Cy3XSGG, Cy3XFGG) and for total root pigment estimate (RTPE). The RTPE QTL with largest phenotypic effects, explaining 50.5% of the variation, is denoted in red on CH3. Asterisks indicate markers that were distorted from expected segregation ratios for P ≤ 0.01 (*) and P ≤ 0.005 (**).
