A Maize Genetic Question

Thank you for the responses to my query regarding increased map distances
after introgression!  In answer to Ed's questions;
both "genes of interest" are both morphological phenotypes- not scored
molecularly.  The hope was that hets could be distinquished from homs by a
closely linked SSR.  One mutant is EMS induced, one is spontaneous.  I
think they should first check whether the map distance is changing in other
inbreds.
