Samollow, Paul; Gouin, Nicolas; Miethke, Patricia; Mahaney, Susan M; Kenney, Margaret; VandeBerg, John L; Graves, Jennifer; Kammerer, C M


The genome of the gray, short-tailed opossum, Monodelphis domestica, will be the first of any marsupial to be fully sequenced. The utility of this sequence will be greatly enhanced by construction and integration of detailed genetic and physical maps. Therefore, it is important to verify the unusual recombinational characteristics that were suggested by the 'first-generation' M. domestica linkage map; specifically, very low levels of recombination and severely reduced female recombination, both...[Show more]
