Table 3 Summary of the genetic linkage map based on a cross between R31945-2-2 and IS 8525. The genetic linkage map was constructed using DArTs, AFLPs and SSRs. The total length of each chromosome, the total number of markers, the total number of DArTs and the number of framework, delegate and attached markers per chromosome are detailed. For the last three columns, the number of DArTs in each class is given in parentheses

From: DArT markers: diversity analyses and mapping in Sorghum bicolor

  1. * 'Framework' markers are defined as those that could be ordered with a jack-knife value of 90% or greater using the MultiPoint software; Delegate markers are defined as those that map to the same location as the representative framework marker for a specific locus; Attached markers are those that initially were excluded from the framework map as they caused unstable neighborhoods but were included in the final, complete map by assigning them to the best intervals on the framework map.
