Marker-assisted selection protocol (MASP)-based strategies produce congenic strains with the target gene contained on clearly defined donor- derived genomic intervals in less than half the number of generations required by the classic protocol. Thus, the quality and speed of congenic strain construction are enhanced by this methodology. Here, Edward Wakeland and colleagues compare various MASP-based strategies and discuss their advantages with reference to immunological traits.
