A map of the barley genome consisting of 107 loci was constructed using double haploid lines. 33 RAPD loci marks all barley chromosomes. The total length of the obtained map is 1047 centiMorgans (cM) with a 9.8 cM average distance between markers. 7 linkage groups was identified as certain chromosomes. The distribution of the markers was analyzed, comparison with other published maps was made. Some statistical considerations are presented. Alternative strategies of gene mapping are considered.
