  • a The physical length is taken from the latest Atlantic salmon genome assembly [GenBank reference GCA_000233375.4 (Davidson et al. 2010)], and ‘unassigned contigs’ are those that were unplaced on the reference assembly but mapped to the chromosome in the linkage map.

  • b The correlation between the genetic distance of SNPs (cM) on the linkage map and the physical distance (bp) according to the reference genome assembly.
