Table 5 Descriptors for linkage groups (LG) constructed from ‘1025’ taro mapping population genotypes. Sixteen major linkage groups (LG) were present in the final linkage map constructed from a mapping population of taro. The SNP markers were called using the “merged” taro genome assembly as a reference (see text for details)
