The report of the bovine chromosome 4 (BTA4) workshop is presented. Six laboratories contributed a total of 30 168 informative meioses from 62 loci. Twenty-two loci were typed by at least two independent laboratories and were used to construct a consensus linkage map of BTA4. The remaining 40 loci were subsequently incorporated into a comprehensive map. The sex-averaged consensus map covered 131 ·4 cM. The female map was 124 ·3 cM in length, while the male map was 134 ·3 cM. The comprehensive sex-averaged map spanned 141 ·6 cM. The length of the female and male comprehensive maps were 123 ·1 cM and 156 ·4 cM, respectively. Average genetic distance between loci was 6 and 2 ·3 cM for the consensus and comprehensive linkage maps, respectively.
