As an important fruit crop that is widely grown commercially in temperate regions of the world, pear (Pyrus) is a target for pursuing efficient breeding strategies. Construction of a reliable and dense genetic linkage map is critical for undertakingmarker-assisted breeding. In this study, a population of 56 F1 seedlings of ‘Bayuehong’×‘Dangshansuli’ was used to construct a high-density simple sequence repeat (SSR)-based genetic linkage map.
