Abstract:A genetic map provides insight into genome organization and chromosomal location of markers and genes, and is important for quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping. The objective of this study was to use a Brazilian resource population to construct a linkage map for chicken chromosome 1. Eighty microsatellite markers were tested and 26 informative markers were typed in an experimental F 2 population developed by two generations of crossbreeding between a broiler sire line and a layer line. A total of 649 F 2 ind… Show more
