Genome Mapping

Gene mapping describes the ways used to identify the locus of a gene and also the distances between genes. The essence of all genome mapping is to put a group of molecular markers onto their several positions at the genome. Molecular markers come in all forms. Genes can be viewed as one special style of genetic markers within the creation of genome maps and mapped the same way as other markers. Mapped features that are not genes are called DNA markers. As with gene markers, a DNA marker must have at least two alleles to be useful. There are three types of DNA sequence feature that satisfy this requirement: restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), simple sequence length polymorphisms (SSLPs), and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
