Genome mapping - identifying where and on which chromosome a gene occurs - has undergone an explosive period of growth in recent years, as automation has increased and well-organized and well-funded genome projects have been set up. This book gives the most up-to-date methods of genomemapping, arranged in order of increasing resolution, from linkage analysis to restriction mapping, and includes two appendices of invaluable biological and computational resources.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is part of a large series of instruction manuals on diverse topics in biochemistry and molecular biology. The 12 individually authored chapters in this volume contain practices and protocols of interest to the advanced researcher in the field of genome mapping. Each chapter contains anintroduction, lists of materials, references, and several protocols. The text is indexed and illustrated with tables and figures, some of which are in color. A list of abbreviations is provided." -- Biosis, Vol 50, Issue 9, Sept 22, 1998
