Mapping genes for color, eye tubers, jelly ends and more

The Jansky and Endelman labs are collaborating on a project to use recombinant inbred lines for genetic mapping in potato.  En route to that goal, we used the first F2 population to map 10 genes, including all 5 previously mapped genes for tuber pigmentation, the CHY2 locus for yellow flesh, the Ro locus for tuber shape, and new genes for eye tubers, jelly ends, and short anthers.  Our publication also identified two misanchored super-scaffolds in version 4.03 of the potato reference genome.
