Release Nine of the Whitehead Institute-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Genome Center Genetic Map of the Mouse is now available. The map consists of randomly chosen simple sequence length polymorphisms (microsatellites) that can be analyzed using PCR as described in W. Dietrich et al.,Genetics 131, 423-47 (1992) and Nature Genetics7, 220-45 (1994).
Release Nine contains 5752 markers in 20 linkage groups spanning about 1400 cM (average spacing, about 0.25 cM). The map can be accessed in the following ways:
This project is ongoing, with new markers released at the beginning of each quarter. [Contact: Ert Dredge; Whitehead Institute Center for Genome Research; One Kendall Square; Bldg. 300, 5th Floor; Cambridge, MA 02139 (617/252-1922, Fax: -1902, firstname.lastname@example.org).]
