Table 1 Characteristics of BAC libraries used in this study

From: A BAC-based integrated linkage map of the silkworm Bombyx mori

BAC library Vector Cloning site Number of clones Mean insert size (kb) Clone coveragea
EcoRI-BAC pBACe3.6 EcoRI 36,864 168 13×
BamHI-BAC pBeloBAC11 BamHI 21,120 165 7.3×

  1. All libraries were constructed with strain p50T using mixed sexes. aTo estimate the genome coverage of each library, we used a genome size of 476 megabases. BAC, bacterial artificial chromosome.
