Abstract: This project will complete a genetic linkage map for pink salmon in FY 98. The first primary aspect of the project in FY 99 is to add additional markers, consolidate linkage groups using gene-centromere mapping, and add additional anchor loci. The second primary aspect is to continue experiments at the Alaska SeaLife Center that use the linkage map to test for organismal effects of regions of the genome on phenotypes that affect traits that are important to recovery of pink salmon (e.g., growth and disease resistance). The project also will test whether there are regions of the genome that are affected by natural selection resulting in differential marine survival of individuals with different genotypes.
