In the last 7 years a large scale world-wide effort has produced genetic linkage maps of most important livestock species. As a result of this we now have the tools to follow the inheritance of every piece of every chromosome in any pedigree, breed or selection line CIOSS. In addition the methods that enable us to analyse the genes and DNA contained within the chromosomes have undergone many incremental improvements so that it is now a realistic research goal to find and characterise the genes responsible for multigenic or quantitative traits in livestock species.
