Genetic maps are the fundamental tools to identify features of phenotypes that are linked to specific genetic loci and eventually DNA sequences or genes. The major use of genetic linkage maps has, therefore, been to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL). Genetic maps are also essential for marker assisted selection, comparative mapping, high-resolution mapping and map based cloning. To date, over 40 maps with at least 300 markers have been published for different Triticeae populations. The quality of genetic maps can be affected by a number of factors and map curation ensures that map quality issues are identified and, where possible, resolved. We report on the issues involved in the production of quality genetic linkage maps by inspection of marker genotype data after map construction.
