Abstract

Wheat (Triticum aestivum) genetic maps are a key enabling tool for genetic studies. We used genotyping-by-sequencing-(GBS) derived markers to map recombinant inbred line (RIL) and doubled haploid (DH) populations from crosses of W7984 by Opata, and used the maps to explore features of recombination control. The RIL and DH populations, SynOpRIL and SynOpDH, were composed of 906 and 92 individuals, respectively. Two high-density genetic linkage framework maps were constructed of 2,842 and 2,961 cM, harboring 3,634 and 6,580 markers, respectively. Using imputation, we added 43,013 and 86,042 markers to the SynOpRIL and SynOpDH maps. We observed preferential recombination in telomeric regions and reduced recombination in pericentromeric regions. Recombination rates varied between subgenomes, with the D genomes of the two populations exhibiting the highest recombination rates of 0.26–0.27 cM/Mb. QTL mapping identified two additive and three epistatic loci associated with crossover number. Additionally, we used published POPSEQ data from SynOpDH to explore the structural variation in W7984 and Opata. We found that chromosome 5AS is missing from W7984. We also found 2,332 variations larger than 100 kb. Structural variants were more abundant in distal regions, and overlapped 9,196 genes. The two maps provide a resource for trait mapping and genomic-assisted breeding.
