  • Data source for input map: QTL-BASE1 (Echt et al. 2011), QTL-BASE2 (Martínez-García et al. 2013), BC1 (Westbrook et al. 2015), 10-5 (Neves et al. 2014); Nind, number of individuals in the mapping populations; Marker type: SNP, single nucleotide polymorphism; PAV, presence/absence variants of genes; RFLP, restriction fragment length polymorphisms, ESTP, expressed sequence tag polymorphism; SSR, simple sequence repeat; Nmarkers original, total number of markers in the original input map, including all redundancies, by marker type and total; Nmarkers selected, number of nonredundant markers selected for maximum informativeness in consensus mapping, by marker type and total; Avg. GIC, input map’s average marker genotype information content; Weight, input map weight value used to resolve marker order conflicts in consensus mapping, scaled in proportion to Avg. GIC; Length, input map’s genome length in cM(Kosambi) units.
