We use maps almost every day. Researchers have also created maps of our genome to help us navigate and find genes of interest!
Join us and explore the discovery of gene linkage which has led to the development of the ultimate high resolution map of the human genome, and important implications for human health! Thanks to these findings, we have been able to isolate genes of interest, identify genes that cause disease, and sequence the entire human genome!
