A genetic linkage map of Pisum sativum L. was constructed based primarily on RAPD markers that were carefully selected for their reproducibility and scored in a population of 139 recombinant inbred lines (RILs). The mapping population was derived from a cross between a protein-rich dry-seed cultivar ‘Térèse’ and an increased branching mutant (K586) obtained from the pea cultivar ‘Torsdag’. The map currently comprises nine linkage groups with two groups comprising only 6 markers (n=7 in pea) and covers 1139 cM. This RAPD-based map has been aligned with the map based on the (JI281×JI399) RILs population that currently includes 355 markers in seven linkage groups covering 1881 cM. The difference in map lengths is discussed. For this alignment 7 RFLPs, 23 RAPD markers, the morphological marker le and the PCR marker corresponding to the gene Uni were used as common markers and scored in both populations.
