A direct comparison of the genetic linkage maps of sorghum and rice is proposed. It is based on the mapping of a common set of 123 RFLP probes scattered on the genomes of both species. For each species a composite map was established by merging two individual maps comprising many common loci. This enabled us to confirm the global correspondence scheme that had previously been established between the chromosomes of sorghum and rice. It also provided a more detailed insight into the conservation of synteny and colinearity: 69% of the loci mapped on a given rice chromosome mapped to the corresponding homoeologous chromosome in sorghum; among them, 84% formed a colinear arrangement between the two species. Local inversions and translocations were detected.
