Genetic linkage mapping has historically been the basis for genomic investigation and the analysis of quantitative trait loci (QTL) ( Doerge, 2002 ). The construction of a detailed linkage map is, in fact, the initial step for the use of genetic

Genetic improvements in crop plants have been achieved by mating selected parents and assessing the performance of the progeny. This method requires breeders or geneticists to assemble desirable genes. Genetic maps depict the location of genetic
