Eucalyptuscomposite map details.Details of markers mapped in the Eucalyptus composite map. Includes, linkage group and position of mapped markers, marker type and which component map(s) markers were mapped. A '1' in the 'Multicopy marker' column indicates that the marker occurs on two or more linkage groups.

Composite map – component map marker colinearity. Marker colinearity among all six component maps and the Eucalyptus composite map. For each linkage group, three linkage group ‘triplets’ show marker colinearity between two component maps (outside) and the composite map (centre). Horizontal lines on linkage group bars indicate marker positions and lines between linkage groups indicate the position of common markers. The scale bar shown is in Kosambi’s centiMorgans. Component map names (abbreviations; see Table 1) are given above each linkage group. Linkage groups excluded from composite map construction are indicated in parentheses following the component map name. An asterisk indicates whether marker-order information from the component map was incorporated during composite map construction (see Methods). For the GU-Emb component map, superscript letters indicates whether the framework (f) or comprehensive (c) linkage group from this pedigree was used in composite map construction.
