Cereals provide for our major food crops, and therefore have been a subject of detailed genetic and cytogenetic studies during major part of the last century. These studies led to the preparation of linkage maps, which were also assigned to individual chromosomes, thus leading to the construction of chromosome maps in all major cereals. In some cases, the availability of cytogenetic stocks (e.g. deletion stocks in bread wheat) also allowed construction of physical maps. In the past, a major limitation in the construction of genetic maps has been the non-availability of mutants for majority of individual genes, so that only handful of genes could be mapped. However, during 1980s, the availability of molecular markers and the high level of DNA polymorphism, which they detect, led to renewed emphasis on genetic and physica........
