We constructed a genetic linkage map for Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) using two backcrosses between genetically divergent strains. Forty-six linkage groups (expected = 39-41) and 19 homeologous affinities (expected = 25) were identified using 184 microsatellites, 129 amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs), 13 type I gene markers, and one phenotypic marker, SEX. Twenty-six markers remain unlinked. Female map distance (9.92 Morgans) was substantially higher than male map distance (3… CONTINUE READING
