A comprehensive male linkage map was generated by adding 359 new, informative microsatellites to the International Equine Gene Map half-sibling reference families and by combining genotype data from three independent mapping resources: a full sibling family created at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, United Kingdom, eight half-sibling families from(More)
Polish Arabian horses are one of the oldest and the most important Arab populations in the world. The Polish Arabian Stud Book and the Genealogical Charts by Skorkowski are the main sources of information on the ancestors of Polish Arabs.

Investigations of genetic polymorphism of microsatellite DNA sequences were conducted in 22 individuals of the European bisonBison bonasus (Linneaus, 1758) from Białowieża Primeval Forest. For this purpose 27 cattle microsatellite primer pairs were used. Among the 27 microsatellite markers examined, an amplification product was obtained for 21 loci. This(More)
The goal of this study was to demonstrate the usefulness of pedigree data in studies of mitochondrial DNA diversity in dogs and horses. Pedigree information allows for precisely choosing animals with distinct haplotypes for analysis, makes it possible to find rare haplotypes present exclusively in single individuals and helps to evaluate haplotype(More)
