Abstract

A whole-genome radiation hybrid (WG-RH) panel was used to generate a first-generation radiation map of the porcine (Sus scrofa) genome. Over 900 Type I and II markers were used to amplify the INRA-University of Minnesota porcine Radiation Hybrid panel (IMpRH) comprised of 118 hybrid clones. Average marker retention frequency of 29.3% was calculated with 757 scorable markers. The RHMAP program established 128 linkage groups covering each chromosome (n = 19) at a lod ≥ 4.8. Fewer than 10% of the markers (59) could not be placed within any linkage group at a lod score ≥4.8. Linkage group order for each chromosome was determined by incorporating linkage data from the swine genetic map as well as physical assignments. The current map has an estimated ratio of ∼70 kb/cR and a maximum theoretical resolution of 145 kb. This initial map forms a template for establishing accurate YAC and BAC contigs and eventual positional cloning of genes associated with complex traits.
