sorry to be slow to reply - just back from holidays.
Nice to hear I'm not the only one.
Amazing the way things are moving isn't it - my mouse project has been going for about 8 years now. Can't remember offhand how many markers we used for the initial F2 screen but it was microsatellites and couldn't have been more than a couple of hundred. Then we did an advanced intercross line - which worked too well, if anything, and for which we used hundreds of SNPs just to look at a handful of regions of interest. And now it's reached the stage where the simplest next step was to just sequence the two parental strains. So we did. (data still in the pipeline, should keep us busy for a bit when it comes...)
Same sort of story in plants?
hey, I just listened to your website songs. I really enjoyed listening to them while surfing the web today. You have a very good musical sense and great tone!
