PMCID: 4757802
PMID: 26743902
DOI: 10.14348/molcells.2016.2264

[…] the selected primer sets were used for virtual pcr analysis of the km and melon sequence data to distinguish nw-specific marker candidates ()., an oriental melon genetic map was constructed using mapmaker 3.0/exp () with 234 dcaps () and 25 ssr markers. f2 population nw and km specimens were used for mapping. recombination fractions were converted to map distances in centimorgans (cm) using […]

DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01714

[…] marker were chosen for molecular mapping of the shr locus. total 769 f2 plants of shr x s. pimpinellifolium were genotyped and analyzed by chi-square test. map construction was carried out using the mapmaker/exe v.3.0 (lander et al., ; lincoln and lander, ) program following kosambi function (kosambi, ). linkage groups were determined using “group” and “error detection on” commands with a lod […]

[…] biased allele distribution and missing data in the worker offspring, 1415 markers remained that were used to construct a genomic linkage map. this map was assembled using kosambi’s map function with mapmaker 3.0b (), according to previously described procedures (; ). we combined de novo linkage analysis with information from the marker order on the physical honey bee genome (ncbi taxid: 7460), […]

[…] further details of the genomic data processing have been given by ., analysis of the phenotype data was performed using spss version 19 (ibm). linkage maps were constructed from the genotype data by mapmaker/exp 3.0 software (). qtl analysis was conducted using qtlnetwork (v.2.0) based on the mixed-model based composite interval mapping (mcim) method (, ). an f-statistic based on the henderson […]

[…] gene-specific primers tatef-1f/r, tatef-2f/r, tatef-3f/r, and tatef-6f/r for tatef-7a localization were used for pcr. tatef-7a was mapped on a mapping population (hanxuan 10×lumai 14) using the mapmaker/exp 3.0 ()., full-length protein sequences of tatef-7a from triticum aestivum (ta), brachypodium distachyon (bd), oryza sativa (os), setaria italica (si), zea mays (zm), sorghum bicolour […]

[…] work for other groups possibly due to differences in population size and distribution. for producing disease maps that incorporate the population age structure, e.g., directly age-adjusted maps, the mapmaker must be careful not to choose different threshold values for each age strata as this could lead to the use of inconsistent spatial supports. generally, spatial supports must be consistently […]

[…] to detect allele can increase kongyu 131’s grain length, we measured grain length and analyzed genotype with an f2 populations constructed by kongyu 131 and gkbr, and made qtl analysis according to mapmaker/qtl 1.1b (lincoln et al. ). we detected a qtl related to grain length on the chromosome 3 (fig. ), nearby gs3 locus, presumably this qtl is gs3 locus. and also we noticed another qtl […]
