We have devised a simple and efficient amplified fragment-length polymorphism (AFLP) system consisting of small slab gels, a discontinuous buffer system, and silver staining. Using this system, a single worker developed a barley map with 227 polymorphic fragments in 2 months. As a mapping population, 99 recombinant inbred lines of barley cultivars 'Azumamugi' x 'Kanto Nakate Gold' were used. Most of the 227 AFLP fragments showed a Mendelian segregation ratio of 1:1, and all were assigned to the seven barley chromosomes. Thus, these fragments are useful as molecular markers. They were integrated with 40 previously characterized sequence-tagged sites, 3 isozymes, and 2 morphological markers to construct an integrated map. The resulting map covered 925.6 cM with 272 markers (detecting 150 loci) at an average interval of 6.5 cM/locus. This system greatly simplifies map construction.
