Fine-mapping of quantitative trait loci for body weight and bone traits and positional cloning of the RB1 gene in chicken.

Abstract

Previously, a quantitative trait locus (QTL) that affects body weight (BW) at 4-12 weeks of age and carcass weight at 12 weeks of age had been mapped on chicken chromosome 1. After including more markers and individuals, the confidence interval was narrowed down to approximately 5.5 Mbps and located this QTL near a microsatellite marker (ADL328). This QTL… (More)
