Title: Construction of a Linkage Map for the Pink Salmon Genome

Project Year and Number: 1996: 96190

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2003: 030190, 2002: 02190, 2001: 01190, 2000: 00190, 1999: 99190, 1998: 98190, 1997: 97190

Principal Investigator (PI): Fred Allendorf, University of Montana

Assisting Personnel: Kathy Knudsen, Kate Linder, Paul Spruell, Joe Tyburczy

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: Proposal would construct a detailed genetic linkage map for pink salmon by analyzing the genetic transmission of several hundred DNA polymorphisms. The ability to genetically map the location of oil-induced lesions will allow the thorough identification, description, and understanding of oil induced genetic damage. This research will also aid other pink salmon studies including estimation of straying rates, description of stock structure, and testing if marine survival has a genetic basis.
