Linkage data for Les8 on chromosome 9S

Testcross data for the cross (+ Les8 +)/(c1 + wx1 X c1 + wx1 were as follows:
 
Reg. Genotype No. Totals
0 + Les8 + 31  
  c1 + wx1 27 58
1 c1 Les8 + 11  
  + + wx1 4 15
2 + Les8 wx1 3  
  C1 + + 1 4
1,2 c1 Les8 wx1 0  
  + + + 2 2

c1 Les8 0.215±0.046

Les8 wx1 0.076±0.030

c1 wx1 0.241± 0.048

The data are consistent with the placement of Les8 approximately 8 map units distal to wx1. Additional tests with other markers in that region (w11, lo2, and l7) will be necessary to place precisely Les8 on the linkage map.
