Another important early advancement toward a more systems-level approach to identifying disease-associated genes was the application of gene mapping
methods to high-throughput molecular data in order to identify causal links between molecular phenotypes and genomic regions.
The real impact of gene mapping
in clinical care is yet to be seen in mainstream health care.
New studies may find new another gene mapping
proximal or distal to the breakpoint that causes the phenotype (14,16).
With new approaches to gene mapping
, such as multicross mapping and HS mapping, which improve the accuracy with which QTLs can be located on the chromosomes, the identification of additional candidate QTGs likely is only a matter of time.
: Determining the relative physical locations of genes on a chromosome.
The disparity between practice and theory involved in TI has become apparent and, while researchers are currently closing this gap, the advent of gene mapping
and the subsequent potential for gene testing and therapy have added a new dimension to this endeavour.
"The GeneChip Mapping 10K array proved highly sensitive and specific, allowing for detection of aberrations as small as 700 kilobases," said Dr Peter Nuernberg, Director of the Gene Mapping
Center at the MaxDelbruck Center in Berlin and senior author on the publication.
Finding and isolating the gene took considerable detective work, involving new gene mapping
techniques developed by Iger's Professor Ian King and comparisons between different plant species.
The project seeks to close a gap between math and biology instruction in high school courses by creating materials that highlight the mathematical principles of gene mapping
, population trends, public health and the spread of diseases.
The Genomics Initiative focuses on gene mapping
and microarray work.
Other applications for restriction enzymes include DNA sequencing, gene mapping
, gene therapeutics, forensics, PCR and routine DNA analysis.
