>>is there a horse genome mapping?
Yes, several groups are involved in horse genome projects.
>>how can you get access?
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 ucdavis.edu
A workshop on the horse genome is scheduled for October. For info on
that you can contact Teri Lear at equigene at ukcc.uky.edu or
Dr. Ernie Bailey at vsc003 at ukcc.uky.edu
>>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.
