A SNP/microsatellite genetic linkage map of the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)

Anim Genet. 2009 Dec;40(6):993-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2052.2009.01938.x. Epub 2009 Aug 20.


A first genetic linkage map of the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) was produced, based on segregation data from 12 full-sib families of Norwegian origin. The map contained 174 single nucleotide polymorphism markers and 33 microsatellites, distributed on 25 linkage groups and had a length of 1225 cM. A significant difference in recombination rates between sexes was found, the average ratio of female:male recombination rates being 1.78 +/- 1.62 (SD).
