  1. Chr., chromosome; Length (kb), chromosome length in kilobases; Marker span (kb), the distance between the first and last markers for each chromosome; Number of markers, total numbers of markers, including microsatellites; Number of crossovers, number of crossovers including subtelomeric regions (values marked with an asterisk are excluding subtelomeric regions); Gene distance (cM), genetic distance in centimorgans; kb/cM, kilobase per centimorgan obtained from the ratio between genetic distance and marker span.
