An extensive collection of barley maps has allowed us to compile a consensus map of barley. The consensus map was informed using four barley maps produced in our laboratory as well as a number of other Australian and international published genetic maps and includes over 2000 markers. CMap software was used to view the consensus map and validate marker order by comparison of the consensus map to the individual maps that contributed to the consensus map. The options in CMap such as the matrix were found useful for quickly assessing the occurrence of duplicate loci. The alignment of different genetic maps was generally unambiguous with respect to the order of loci and examples of alignments will be presented together with an estimate of the error inherent in producing the consensus map. QTLs were also inserted into map in a searchable format within the software and this has enhanced the value of the map considerably.
