A genetic linkage map of sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.] based on AFLP markers

Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) based genetic linkage maps were developed for hexaploid sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam., 2n = 6x = 90) using a segregating population derived from a biparental cross between the cultivars ’Tanzania’ and ’Bikilamaliya’. A total of 632 (’Tanzania’) and 435 (’Bikilamaliya’) AFLPs could be ordered …
