The distribution of RAPD markers was compared with that of RFLP markers in a high density linkage map of sugar beet. The same mapping population of 161 F2 individuals was used to generate all the marker data. The total map comprises 160 RAPD and 248 RFLP markers covering 508 cM. Both the RAPD and the RFLP markers show a high degree of clustering over the nine linkage groups. The pattern is compatible with a strong distal localization of recombination in the sugar beet. It leads generally to one major cluster of markers in the centre of each linkage group. In regions of high marker density, dominant RAPD markers present in either linkage phase and codominant RFLP markers are subclustered relative to each other. This phenomenon is shown to be attributable to: (i) effects of the mapping procedure when dominant and codominant data are combined, (ii) effects of the mapping procedure when dominant data in both linkage phases are combined, and (iii) genuine differences in the way RAPD and RFLP markers are recruited.
