These maps were prepared by Silflow/Lefebvre at the University of Minnesota and represent the status of the molecular mapping project, as of August 2002. They have been invaluable in identifying previously mapped genes in the genomic sequence. The molecular map was based on a set of 136 random progeny from a cross between the usual laboratory strain of C. reinhardtii (Smith 137C, isolated in Massachusetts in 1945) and the Minnesota isolate S1D2 (Gross et al., 1988). The molecular markers include RFLPs identified in random clones and in specific genes or cDNAs contributed by researchers, and sequence tagged site (STS) markers.

The maps can be viewed in your web browser by clicking on the Linkage Group link.
To print the maps, click on the Image link, and either use a 25-30% reduction in Page Setup, or save as a .gif file and open in Photoshop or other graphics software, then print at the desired reduction.
The Markers links give information on the loci used as markers on each linkage group.
