Genetic map of triticale compiling DArT, SSR, and AFLP markers

A set of 90 doubled haploid (DH) lines derived from F1 plants that originated from a cross between xTriticosecale Wittm. ‘Saka3006’ and xTriticosecale Wittm. ‘Modus’, via wide crossing with maize, were used to create a genetic linkage map of triticale. The map has 21 linkage groups assigned to the A, B, and R genomes including 155 simple sequence repeat (SSR), 1385 Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT), and 28 amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers covering 2397 cM with a mean distance between two markers of 4.1 cM.
