Gene maps of livestock will play an important role in the development of new animal breeding technologies based on molecular techniques. The current status of the bovine gene map is reviewed and various methods of mapping genes are discussed. The task of constructing the bovine gene map will be aided by the conservation of chromosomal segments amongst mammalian species. In particular, the detailed maps of man and the mouse can be used to rapidly establish a provisional, but extensive bovine gene map.
