  • a Linkage mapping studies on populations ALB (Okada et al. 2010), NF (Serba et al. 2013), and NL94 (Liu et al. 2012) were compared with the AL-NF population using the LCS method and SSR primer sets used in multiple studies. The Setaria italica genome was compared to the AL-NF population using the molecular coordinates on the scaffold sequences of the best blast hits to EST-SSR.

  • b Italicized letters a and b refer to individual subgenomes, whereas m and f refer to male and female linkage maps.

  • c The first number represents the fraction of SSR compared that are present in the LCS, whereas the number in parentheses is the number of SSR shared in common between the two groups. LCS of groups with 18 or fewer markers in common was not reported.
