 A genetic linkage map of cassava has been constructed with 132 RFLPs, 30 RAPDs, 3 microsatellites, and 3 isoenzyme markers segregating from the heterozygous female parent of an intraspecific cross. The F1 cross was made between ‘TMS 30572’ and ‘CM 2177-2’, elite cassava cultivars from Nigeria and Colombia, respectively. The map consists of 20 linkage groups spanning 931.6 cM or an estimated 60% of the cassava genome. Average marker density is 1 per 7.9 cM. Since the mapping population is an F1… CONTINUE READING
