Supplementary Material for: Integration of chicken genomic resources to enable whole-genome sequencing

Different genomic resources in chicken were integrated through the Wageningen chicken BAC library. First, a BAC anchor map was created by screening this library with two sets of markers: microsatellite markers from the consensus linkage map and markers created from BAC end sequencing in chromosome walking experiments. Second, <i>Hin</i>dIII digestion fingerprints were created for all BACs of the Wageningen chicken BAC library. Third, cytogenetic positions of BACs were assigned by FISH. These integrated resources will facilitate further chromosome-walking experiments and whole-genome sequencing.
