The gznetic map of T. thermophila has been extended with tests of over 170 marker combinations. Three linkage groups have been identified, in addition to several apparent linkagcs whirh are seen only wlien certain strains are uscd. A sampling argument was clcveloped to estimate the total genetic map length from the observed fraction of marlier combinations showing linkage. If the strain dependent linkages are actuallv due to structural heteiozygosity, the total map length is estimated at about… CONTINUE READING
