This set of papers illustrates superbly the very rapid developments indissecting the underlying genetics behind the phenotype we see. The progress is not only in gene mapping itself but in the development of the powerful analytical tools, both at the conceptual (e.g. FINDGENE) and at the software level. The progress in developing gene maps in livestock is built on the back of the Human Genome programme with the rapid developments in laboratory and statistical tech- niques. The general conservation of genome organisation across widely divergent species is itself a huge advantage in constructing new maps. In this respect, the deer hybrids are proving a remarkable raource and may well prove to be an ideal ruminant prototype map on which to map new markers.
