[…] the genome assembly. a subset of 355 markers well distributed across eight linkage groups were selected and used to generate a less redundant genetic map for qtl mapping (supplementary fig. 18). r/qtl was used to generate a plot of recombination fraction and lod score along each linkage group (supplementary fig. 19). with this plot we can identify regions where we may have incorrectly […]

[…] and there were at least 20 ri lines with snps at a single site. the maximum parsimonious inference of recombination package was adopted to identify recombinant breakpoints and generate bins. the r/qtl package was used to calculate the genetic distance between markers in kosambi mapping function13. a recombinant hot spot was identified between chr13 (physical position from 20,343,655 […]
