An integrated BAC physical map of the pig genome and selection of the minimum tilepath. Plant and Animal Genome Conference Proceedings. Poster #W237. p. 60.

Technical Abstract: We have constructed a physical map of the pig genome by integrating restriction fingerprints and BAC end sequences generated from 4 BAC libraries with radiation hybrid markers, and contig alignments to the human genome. The map provides coverage across the 18 pig autosomes and the X chromosome in 176 contigs as well as localised representation of the gene rich regions on Y. The map is accessible through WebFPC (http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/S_scrofa/WebFPC/porcine/large.shtml) and represents an entry point for rapid electronic positional cloning of genes and fine mapping of QTLs. The map provides a platform for the selection of an efficient minimum tilepath through the genome to support clone-based sequencing and targeted functional genomics studies.
