A physical map for the short arm of bread wheat chromosome 1A was constructed from fluorescent high information content (HICF) fingerprints of a 1AS BAC library ( CNRGV page ) . The fingerprint data were assembled with LTC. 715 contigs were produced from 25,918 HICF fingerprints covering an estimated 99% of the chromosome.

All resources related to chromosome 1A can be found by clicking on the chromosome above. In addition, the physical map can be accessed here .
