genetic map

or gene map
A graphic representation of the arrangement of genes on a chromosome. A genetic map is used to locate and identify the gene or genes that determine a particular inherited trait. ♦ Locating and identifying genes in a genetic map is called genetic mapping.

Genetic mapping in plants are often constructed utilizing segregating populations from crosses between inbred lines, but this strategy is not possible for many of those plants that have high heterozygosity and long life cycles, such as forest trees (Grattapaglia and Sederoff, 1994), fruit trees (Kenis and Keulemans, 2005), perennial flowers (Dunemann et al.
