  • Nine biparental (F1) and one self-pollinated (S1) populations were generated in which a variety of disease and agronomic traits were segregating. After sequencing, individuals that were not full sibs and/or had insufficient read depth for accurate variant calling were removed prior to map construction. CBSD, cassava brown streak disease; CMD, cassava mosaic disease.
