Table 4 Comparison between the JoinMap/perl consensus map and three alternative synthetic maps built with PhenoMap.

From: A high-density consensus map of barley linking DArT markers to SSR, RFLP and STS loci and agricultural traits

  Base map
  Steptoe/Morex Yerong/Franklin Selected by PhenoMapa
Correlation between locus positions in synthetic maps and locus positions in the consensus map b
Mean ± SD 0.996 ± 0.004 0.992 ± 0.014 0.995 ± 0.006
Range 0.988–0.998 0.959–0.998 0.982–0.998
Chromosome lengths in synthetic maps as a percentage of the lengths in the consensus map b
Mean ± SD 98.7 ± 9.4% 103.9 ± 8.4% 96.5 ± 6.2%
Range 79.1–108.8% 95.2–119.2% 86.0–103.2%
  1. a The base (reference) maps selected by PhenoMap were: Clipper/Sahara (1H), Yerong/Franklin (2H), Clipper/Sahara (3H), Dayton/Zhepi2 (4H), Barque-73/CPI71284-48 (5H, 6H) and Dayton/Zhepi2 (7H).
  2. b The values reported are averages across chromosomes. Eighty-five loci not assayed in the seven populations used to construct the synthetic maps (Table 3) were removed from the JoinMap/perl consensus map before the comparison.
