Project: The pig gene mapping project - identifying trait genes.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-95 – 31-DEC-99
- The availability of the molecular map of the porcine genome (PiGMaP I) now allows us to understand the nature of genetic variation at the level of individual genes. This porcine map is beginning to be used to locate genes controlling economically important traits and this information will increasingly be used to speed genetic progress via marker assisted selection (MAS).
