|Gene mapping is a process in which the gene responsible for the inherited disorders can be easily found. This can provide the evidence the disease transmitted from ancestors to offsprings is linked to one or more number of genes. This process is also used to locate the gene on a chromosome.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
