We have initiated a project to test for conservation of gene order
(conserved synteny) between Ambystoma and genomically-well characterized
vertebrate species.  At this point, we have mapped approximately 20 protein
coding loci using genetic linkage analysis and a mapping panel created by
interspecific hybridization (Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum x A. mexicanum,
Voss and Shaffer, 1997).  We are interested in acquiring as many unpublished
DNA sequences of ambystomatid protein coding loci as possible; we are
especially interested in genes that are important in ambystomatid research
programs, as well as genes that have known orthologs in other vertebrate
models.  Our long/medium term goal is the development of a genomics resource
to assist ambystomatid researchers in establishing gene homologies and in
identifying candidate genes.  If you have DNA sequences that you would like
to share with us, or if you would like further information about our work,
or if you would simply like to offer suggestions/comments/opinions, please
send us an email. Thanks, Randal
