In addition to toxicity screening, the unique genetic structure of the DO mice can be used to perform high-resolution linkage mapping to identify genetic variants that determine individual responses to toxicant exposures.
It is this polymorphic nature that makes these markers ideal for linkage mapping because their multiallelic status allows for a high information content, facilitating the detection of segregating alleles (Hauser & Seeb 2008).
Most of these chapters discuss statistical and computational methods for linkage mapping and association studies in experimental species and humans.
Secondly, map length may be inflated by the linkage mapping program MAPMAKER (Sybenga, 1996).
The search for alcoholism susceptibility genes centers on two major techniques, linkage mapping and the candidate gene approach.
The instrument can sequence plasmid, BAC end, and double-stranded templates and can be used with PE Biosystems' BigDye Primer and Terminator chemistries and Linkage Mapping Set Version 2 fragment analysis chemistries as well as with various other chemistries.
The invention of linkage mapping in 1912 - largely the inspiration of graduate students Alfred Sturtevant and Calvin Bridges, according to Kohler - rapidly obliged the Drosophilists to "standardize" the fly, that is to remove all unwanted genetic variation and to create an instrument for the recombinant mapping of the genome.
The developed SSR markers will be helpful for further studies on population genetics, genetic linkage construction and chromosome linkage mapping in the species.
The flow map of the SNP marker selection process for linkage mapping is illustrated in Figure 1.
The objectives of this study are to (1) isolate and characterize microsatellite genetic markers for the Pacific whiteleg shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, (2) demonstrate the usefulness of three randomly selected markers to examine allelic variation in wild and cultured shrimp populations, and trace the pedigree of two families from the breeding program of the US Marine Shrimp Farming Program (USMSFP); and (3) determine the potential usefulness of these microsatellites for linkage mapping.
