Interpretive Summary: Efforts to use molecular technologies in the genetic improvement of agricultural species have recently included the genetic mapping of rainbow trout. This report gives details on 19 new genetic markers developed for mapping in rainbow trout. This is the eighth set of markers from the marker development phase of our mapping project.
Technical Abstract: Nineteen new polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for QTL mapping and population genetics studies in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The amount of polymorphism, percent heterozygosity, ability of each marker to amplify genomic DNA from other salmonids and two point linkage data were recorded. Twelve of the 19 markers were informative for linkage mapping in the University of Guelph reference families.
