Almond is one of the most important nut crops in Turkey.
Genetic linkage maps are important tools to develop markers linked to important phenotypic characters.
We constructed a SSR-based linkage map in almond using a 'Gulcan-2' × 'Laurenne' F1 population.
The consensus map included a total of 168 SSR markers in eight linkage groups (LGs). The number of mapped markers changed from 13 (LG6) to 31 (LG2), and the length of the LGs changed from 47.8 (LG6) to 84.6 cM (LG1). Average number of SSR markers per linkage group was 21. The marker density was 3.1 cM‑1. The linkage map will help to develop markers linked to important traits when phenotyping data was completed.
