Chromosome-specific libraries provide a means to isolate genetic markers from specific chromosomal regions. A small-insert BTA6 library, constructed by microdissection, was screened for dinucleotide repeats (CA)15 and (GA)15. A total of 47 new microsatellite loci were developed and tested for polymorphism and informativeness using the MARC bovine mapping family.
