The consensus map for hexaploid oat (Avena sativa L.) from Chaffin et al. 2016 has been added to GrainGenes.
The consensus map was created from 12 biparental RIL populations. A total of 19 parents were used in the crosses in order to represent the diversity of North American hexaploid oat germplasm. Over 16,000 markers were mapped, with 7,202 markers forming a framework consensus (including 2965 markers from the 6K SNP array [Tinker et al. 2014], and 3695 from GBS [Huang et al., 2014]), and another 9,678 lower-confidence GBS markers that were placed subsequently. Analysis reveals that the oat genome has gone through significant chromosomal rearrangements.
