    Unraveling the molecular processes that lead from genotype to phenotype is crucial for the understanding and effective treatment of genetic diseases. Knowledge of the causative genetic defect most often does not enable treatment; therefore, causal intermediates between genotype and phenotype...

    Abstract Microsatellites, an essential tool for genetic linkage analyses, are selected in genetic studies on the basis of both informativeness and their positions with respect to one another on the genetic map. In order to establish a microsatellite marker set useful for linkage studies in the...

    Arthrogryposis is a congenital malformation affecting the limbs of newborn animals and infants. Previous work has demonstrated that inherited ovine arthrogryposis (IOA) has an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Two affected homozygous recessive ( art/art) Suffolk rams were used as founders...
