C. briggsae genetic linkage map update
In this update several new loci/genes have been added. The order of genes is based 3-factor mapping and/or physical locations in CB3 assembly.
In some cases linkage distance between two genes have also been determined. This was done by 2-factor mapping by constructing double mutants.
The C. elegans orthologs are identified by a 'Cbr' prefix. These genes are validated by transgenic rescue of mutant alleles. In some cases, mutations have also been sequenced.
Some genes and integrants (listed on the right of LGI to LGX) are partially mapped. Their precise locations need to be determined. Question marked (?) loci require validation.
