Locating genes on the pig genome will facilitate genetic improvement in pig productivity. Substituting portions of the chromosome (haplotypes) with standard haplotypes containing marker genes and observing changes in a quantitative trait can help to locate genes affecting economically important traits.Observations in this study are consistent with a model in which the halothane locus is the site of a series of genes affecting growth rate and appetite.Fatness genes onthe other hand seem to have been at loci away from the halothane locus.
