Previous genetic mapping identified three linkage groups (M1, M18 and M26) in the turkey corresponding to chicken chromosome 1 (GGA1). This is inconsistent with previously described chromosomal differences between these species. FISH analysis of BAC clones correspending to microsatellite markers from each of the three turkey linkage groups, assigned all three linkage groups to a single chromosome (MGA1).
