Chicken cDNA probes were used to map 10 loci by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis in progeny of the Jungle Fowl x White Leghorn chicken backcross gene mapping reference population. The cDNA probes were from a subset of a T-cell library whose sequence tags showed significant homology to other avian or mammalian sequences in the EMBL database. Placement of loci generated by Compton cDNA clones on the East Lansing linkage map contributes to development of a consensus from the two linkage maps and will help provide a framework to evaluate the phenotypic effects of these genes.
