In sequencing eukaryotic genomes, linkage maps are indispensable for building scaffolds with which to assemble and/or to validate chromosomes. However, current approaches to construct linkage maps are limited by marker density and cost-effectiveness, especially for wild organisms. We have now devised a new strategy based on artificially generated hybrid organisms to acquire ultra high-density genomic markers at lower cost and build highly accurate linkage maps. Using this method, linkage maps
