Abstract

Previously published linkage groups (LGs) composed of molecular markers were assigned to classical LGs in the silkworm, Bombyx mori (n = 28). Four markers from the classical linkage map, og, w-1, Lp, and Pfl, were assigned to the molecular linkage maps using sequence tagged sites. In addition, linkage analysis was carried out using BF1 progeny between wild-type and mutant stocks carrying morphological phenotypic markers. As a result, the counterparts for 26 of 28 molecular LGs were identified with their counterparts of the classical LGs. Two visible markers, Sel and Xan, representing different classical LGs, were found to be linked. © 2005 NRC.
