  1. 1Note that there are 29 European linkage groups, and for historical reasons there is no AS-26, As-27, AS-29 or AS-30. The integration of the European Atlantic salmon SALMAP linkage groups and chromosomes is taken from Phillips et al. [24]. The NB1 male-specific linkage groups that correspond to pairs of the SALMAP linkage groups are shown by * and **. ***NB1-19f comprises two markers 26 cM apart, and was only obtained at a LOD score of 2 rather than 3.
