Map Length
The Map Length tab is shown below:
The Map Length tab contains the following elements:
This plot displays for each input linkage group Z (where Z is the input linkage group name) the map length (y-axis) versus the chromosome index (x-axis). Each colored filled-circle represents the map length for a given chromosome index.
Note: The name for a chromosome index for the consensus map is defined by a concatenation of input linkage group name, a dot, the word Consensus (if the map is a consensus output), a dot, and the maximum interval window used to build the consensus map (if the map is a consensus output). For example, if the input linkage group name is 1H and the map is a consensus output build with maximum interval window of 2, then the chromosome index is 1H.Consensus.mw2. Chromosome indexes for the original input linkage groups are likewise defined, however, with the word consensus replaced by the name of the input map file, and without maximum interval window. For example, if an input linkage group has name 1H, and it is coming from an input file named mb.sas7bdat, then its chromosome index is 1H.mb.
Evaluation of consensus map length across different levels of the maximum interval window can be used as a tool to select which maximum interval window results in a consensus map with the best fit.
