Interpretive Summary: We report a detailed high-resolution map of a 5.5 million base pair region on pig chromosome 6q1.2, which contains the gene causing porcine stress syndrome. This region also represents one of the most gene-rich regions of the pig genome. The mapping information will facilitate the collection of the entire DNA sequence of this region during the upcoming pig genome sequencing project. Furthermore, the integration of physical mapping information with the genetic map allows the rational selection of positional candidate genes for important traits that have been mapped to this genome region.
