>>is there a horse genome mapping?
	Yes, several groups are involved in horse genome projects.

>>how can you get access?
>>from www
	My understanding is that databases are being set up.  A web page
is maintained by Lee Millon in Dr. Ann Bowling's group.  You can
contact him by email at   lvmillon at
A workshop on the horse genome is scheduled for October.  For info on
that you can contact Teri Lear at  equigene at or 
Dr. Ernie Bailey at vsc003 at

>>is the male or female the heterogametic sex?
	The horse has 64 chromosomes -- a mixture of meta- and submetacentric
and acrocentric chromosomes.  The male is heterogametic, XY.
