As a part of our program: "Gene mapping in Farm Animals and Fish", we have isolated and characterized Mhc class I and class II genes together with DNA microsatellite markers. Considerable polymorphism has been revealed in both systems and this will be utilized in our genome mapping effort. The material consisted of fish derived from the major Norwegian breeding pool, together with haploid offspring generated by haploid gynogenesis (Lie et al. 1994). The haploid material is very suitable for a variety of purposes, e.g. linkage analysis, defining alleles/haplotypes, developmental studies, identification of potential lethal genes etc. Physical mapping techniques (e.g.PFGE) are also in progress.
