The lowest confidence rating of 3 is 706 markers, of which 102 are new this year. All but two of these given to markers localized only to a broad area by methods such as markers are localized on the chromosome, and several markers QTL analysis, in situ hybridization, somatic cell hybrid analysis, or listed as syntenic last year are localized on this year’s map (for markers mapped on crosses with few markers in common with example, Hlcs and Hgd). The major change from previous years is other crosses. Markers with a confidence of 3 are assigned a spe- that 56 of the new markers, more than half, have been localized on cific position due to constraints in presentation, but should be physical maps.
