The bacterial artificial clone-based physical map for chicken plays an important role in the integration of the consensus linkage map and the whole-genome shotgun sequence. It also provides a valuable resource for clone selection within applications such as fluorescent in situ hybridization and positional cloning. However, a substantial number of clone contigs have not yet been assigned to a chromosomal location or have an ambiguous chromosome assignment. In this study, 86 single nucleotide polymorphism markers derived from 86 clones were mapped on the genetic map. These markers added anchoring information for 56 clone contigs and 13 individual clones, covering a total of 57,145 clones.
