Bighorn sheep sex-average linkage map compared with the domestic sheep IMF map. For each chromosome, the bighorn sheep linkage groups (LGs) are on the left while the domestic sheep LGs are on the right. Lines connect orthologous loci. Markers not mapping to the same location in the two species are in bold while markers only mapped in bighorn sheep are italicized. The thin vertical line connecting OarFCB11to chromosome 2 indicates that this marker was assigned to that chromosome but was excluded from the linkage analysis for being more than 50 centimorgans (cM) away from the closest neighbouring marker. That interval was not included in the total map length estimate and its length in the figure is arbitrary. The ruler at the top left corner represents a cM scale.
