As a result of the study of linkage between marker genes and translocations by Kramer, Veyl and Hanson (1954) linkage groups III (n) and VII (br) were found to be associated with the same chromosome (chromosome 1).

Later, Tsuchiya (1956) confirmed by trisomic analysis of n, br, and fc the association of these two linkage groups. Haus (1958) found by conventional linkage studies the association of genes ac2 (Group III) and yc (Group VII).

In Barley Genetics I (1964) the first complete map of chromosome 1 was published.
