THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, documented on July 17, 2013. An international collaboration between 46 labs from 20 different countries towards a low resolution canine marker map under the auspices of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG). The map under development should achieve a resolution of about 20 cM and some of the markers should be mapped physically. The participants have agreed to use microsatellites as markers on a common panel of reference families which will provide the backbone of the marker map. It is foreseen to also include type I markers in the mapping effort and to produce cosmid derived microsatellites for physical mapping. For this purpose part of the effort focuses on the standardization of the canine karyotype. Special attention is payed to hereditary diseases where efforts are under way to establish resource families either by collecting families or by specific breeding. A point of emphasis of the DogMap project is the setting up of an internationally accessible database for handling the mapping data. The structure of the DogMap collaboration includes a managing committee and scientific advisers. The managing committee is responsible for the overall coordination of the activities within the collaboration, for the dissemination of relevant information to all of the participants and for the representation of DogMap outside the collaboration.
