Abstract

A genetic linkage map for Suncus murinus was previously constructed with 11 marker loci. In this study, we developed 172 new microsatellite and three RFLP markers, and re-constructed a new framework map by combining all markers. The new map comprises 42 markers that are distributed into 12 linkage groups, two of which are assigned to chromosomes, and spans 403.5 cM with an average inter-marker distance of 13.5 cM.
