Anton Sonnenberg (PRI Wageningen) has recently submitted a detailed Agaricus bisporus linkage map to the JGI, based mainly on data provided by PRI and Marie Foulongne (INRA Bordeaux).
Data on known repeat elements, from Rick Kerrigan and Anton, has also been sent to the JGI.
It is hoped that these data will help resolve chromosomal groups in current scaffolds, advancing the ‘genome improvement’ that is taking place prior to machine annotation.
