Unfolding large-scale maps

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gyfnodolynErthygladolygiad gan gymheiriaid


This is an account of the development and use of genetic maps, from humble beginnings at the hands of Thomas Hunt Morgan, to the sophistication of genome sequencing. The review charters the emergence of molecular marker maps exploiting DNA polymorphism, the renaissance of cytogenetics through the use of fluorescence in situ hybridisation, and the discovery and isolation of genes by map-based cloning. The historical significance of sequencing of DNA prefaces a section describing the sequencing of genomes, the ascendancy of particular model organisms, and the utility and limitations of comparative genomic and functional genomic approaches to further our understanding of the control of biological processes. Emphasis is given throughout the treatise as to how the structure and biological behaviour of the DNA molecule underpin the technological development and biological applications of maps.
