A high-density genetic linkage map with informative markers is essential for plant genome analysis, including gene mapping, identification of quantitative trait locus (QTL), map-based cloning, and physical map construction. Though four genetic linkage maps for the recombinant inbred line population NJRIKY derived from (Kefeng 1×Nannong 1138-2) have been established already, there are still problems of precision and accuracy in mapping genes and QTLs due to insufficiency of genetic information and number of markers. A total of 401 polymorphic SSR markers were screened out from 967 ones for density-enhancement of the previous maps. Along with other marker data, a new genetic linkage map was constructed by using Mapmaker/Exp 3.0b, with 553 markers, including 316 SSR, 197 RFLP, 39 EST and one morphologic markers, spanning 25 linkage groups, covering total length 2 071.6 cM of the soybean genome, with an average marker interval distance of 3.70 cM. In comparison with the old map, the number of gaps larger than 20 cM decreased from forty-two to two on the enhanced map. Using this map to relocate the seven SMV resistant genes, Rsc-3, Rsc-7, Rsc-9, Rsc-13, Rsa, Rn1 and Rn3 were mapped on LG D1b again with distances to the flanking markers all less than 6 cM, among them, Rsc-9, Rn1 and Rsa less than 1 cM and Rsc-13 co-segregating with EST-SSR marker GMKF168a. After re-mapping the QTLs for eight agronomic traits, 42 QTLs were detected on 12 linkage groups, with 20 of them accounted for more than 10% of the total variation, respectively, and their marker intervals obviously shortened.
