*Table 1 summarizes the number of microsatellite markers for which we generated or collected genotypes for each set of RI strains on each chromosome. In the case of the AXB-BXA strains we pooled our genotypes with those generated by Sampson and colleagues (1998). Our new BXD data were pooled with genotypes of Taylor and colleagues (1999), and CXB genotypes were pooled with the genotypes of Panoutsakopoulou and colleagues (1997). All data were eventually transferred to Map Manager QT and QTX. Both individual RI databases and the composite BXN database are available as text files formatted for used with Map Manager QTX files at www.nervenet.org/papers/BXN.html. The text files are compatible with Windows and Macintosh versions of Map Manager QTX and can be imported into a text editor or spreadsheet program.
