Chromosome Mapping of Ancient Bloodlines teaches people how to trace their bloodlines through chromosome mapping to confirm ancestors. Chromosome mapping collaboration can help confirm the presence of dna signatures on chromosomes left by ordinary, famous or noble ancestors. Chromosome mapping can help trace ancient bloodlines by using end location numbers of CM on chromosomes. Members get access to the database to add information of bloodlines they have mapped and to find end location numbers of researched ancestors and famous people.

T-cell growth factor (TCGF) or interleukin-2 (IL-2), an immunoregulatory lymphokine, is produced by lectin- or antigen-activated mature T lymphocytes and in a constitutive manner by certain T-cell lymphoma cell lines. By means of a molecular clone of human TCGF and DNA extracted from a panel of somatic cell hybrids (rodent cells X normal human lymphocytes), the TCGF structural gene was identified on human chromosome 4. In situ hybridization of the TCGF clone to human chromosomes resulted in significant labeling of the midportion of the long arm of chromosome 4, indicating that the TCGF gene was located at band q26-28. Genomic DNA from a panel of hybrids prepared with HUT-102 B2 cells was examined with the same molecular clone. In this clone of cells, which produces human T-cell leukemia virus, the TCGF gene was also located on chromosome 4 and was apparently not rearranged. The homologous TCGF locus in the domestic cat was assigned to chromosome B1 by using a somatic cell hybrid panel that ...

For over 40 years germ-cell mutagenesis experiments have generated many new mutations at the brown (b or Tyrp1) locus on mouse Chromosome (Chr) 4. These mutations, many of which are deletions, were recovered by the specific-locus mutagenesis technique. Previous analysis of a panel of brown deletions …
We were learning about chromosome mapping with this lab. We had to throw a stick across a line and marker how many times a gene had a crossover; we did that a hundred times. Then we had to calculate the frequency of each by taking the number of times that gene had a cross over, then divided by 100. Then taking that frequency, we multiplied by 15 to calculate the gene location of each gene. Then we answered a few questions. This lab was fun to do, and did help with understanding how linkage worked and how certain genes would become recessive and to map a chromosome by finding the frequency to find the length between each gene.. ...
To facilitate mapping of the cystic fibrosis locus (CF) and to isolate the corresponding gene, we have screened a flow-sorted chromosome 7-specific library for additional DNA markers in the 7q31-q32 region. Unique (single-copy) DNA segments were selected from the library and used in hybridization analysis with a panel of somatic cell hybrids containing various portions of human chromosome 7 and patient cell lines with deletion of this chromosome. A total of 258 chromosome 7-specific single-copy DNA segments were identified, and most of them localized to subregions. Fifty three of these corresponded to DNA sequences in the 7q31-q32 region. Family and physical mapping studies showed that two of the DNA markers, D7S122 and D7S340, are in close linkage with CF. The data also showed that D7S122 and D7S340 map between MET and D7S8, the two genetic markers known to be on opposite sides of CF. The study thus reaffirms the general strategy in approaching a disease locus on the basis of chromosome ...

The 21 wheat chromosomes differ in absolute size and arm ratio (B. S. Gill et al. 1991). The expectation was that larger chromosomes would have a greater number of EST loci than the smaller chromosomes. Similarly, the long arms would have greater numbers of EST loci than the short arms within a chromosome. Both expectations were realized with some exceptions. Among the 21 chromosomes, 3B and 2B rank first and second in size and they also ranked first and second in number of EST loci, with 972 and 948 EST loci, respectively. Chromosome 1D is the smallest in size, yet chromosomes 6D (584 EST loci, ranked eighteenth on the basis of size) and 4B (612 EST loci, ranked eleventh on the basis of size) had the fewest number of EST loci. As a rule, the long arms had greater numbers of EST loci than the shorter arms (data not shown) and, among the long arms, 5BL is the longest and had the highest number of mapped EST loci (636).. Because individual chromosomes within a homoeologous group were assumed to ...
After accounting for the larger physical size of the RGSC 6.0/rn6 rat genome build (2,619 Mb) compared with the original Baylor 3.4/rn4 rate genome build (2,554 Mb), the increased size of the rat genetic map (1,708 cM) is proportional to the original Jensen-Seaman map (1,542 cM). Thus, although the coordinates of highly recombinant regions in the rat genome were refined in the revised rat genetic map, the sex-averaged genomewide recombination rates did not change (0.66 cM/Mb vs. 0.65 cM/Mb). Although the genomewide recombination rates did not change, fine-scale localization of highly recombinant regions differed between the Jensen-Seaman map and the revised rat genetic map. One potential reason for the refined localization of highly recombinant regions in the revised rat genetic map is the greater potential of genetic variation due to the possibility of eight informative HS founder haplotypes per genomic position, whereas prior rat genetic maps relied on crosses between two parental strains with ...
Our genetic information is stored in 23 pairs of chromosomes that vary widely in size and shape. Chromosome 1 is the largest and is over three times bigger than chromosome 22. The 23rd pair of chromosomes are two special chromosomes, X and Y, that determine our sex. Females have a pair of X chromosomes (46, XX), whereas males have one X and one Y chromosomes (46, XY). Chromosomes are made of DNA, and genes are special units of chromosomal DNA. Each chromosome is a very long molecule, so it needs to be wrapped tightly around proteins for efficient packaging.
Human chromosome 16 is the main focus of the mapping efforts at Los Alamos. The large photomicrograph on these opening pages illustrates the starting point for those mapping efforts, the evaluation of our chromosome-16-specific library of cloned fragments. Among the 23 pairs of human chromosomes, one pair, chromosome 16, is identified by fluorescence in-situ hybridization. Thousands of yellow fluorescent probes derived from the clone library have hybridized to both copies of chromosome 16. The high density and uniform coverage of the fluorescent signals were a strong indication that we could use the library to construct a map of overlapping cloned fragments spanning the entire length of the chromosome.

AU - Genaev, Mikhail A.. AU - Orlov, Yuriy L.. PY - 2018/2/9. Y1 - 2018/2/9. N2 - Background: The use of artificial data to evaluate the performance of aligners and peak callers not only improves its accuracy and reliability, but also makes it possible to reduce the computational time. One of the natural ways to achieve such time reduction is by mapping a single chromosome. Results: We investigated whether a single chromosome mapping causes any artefacts in the alignments performances. In this paper, we compared the accuracy of the performance of seven aligners on well-controlled simulated benchmark data which was sampled from a single chromosome and also from a whole genome. We found that commonly used statistical methods are insufficient to evaluate an aligner performance, and applied a novel measure of a ...

AU - Loos, M. PY - 1996/4. Y1 - 1996/4. N2 - Mouse complement component C1q is a serum glycoprotein which consists of six A chains, six B chains and six C chains. The three polypeptides are 223, 228, and 217 residues long, respectively, and are encoded by three genes. DNA probes for mouse C1q A, B, and C chains were hybridized to Southern blots of DNA obtained from various inbred mouse strains. On the basis of fragment length polymorphisms, two different alleles of each of the genes could be identified. The distribution of these alleles was determined in the BXD and LXPL recombinant inbred strain series. Comparison with previously reported strain distribution patterns shows that the genes encoding mouse C1q map to the same locus on distal chromosome 4. Overlapping clones spanning the entire gene ...
eQTL tries to regress each gene expression against each SNP, in order to find those regulatory elements. And eQTL uses normal samples, right? (by normal I mean no disease like those in 1000genome project). GWAS compares SNPs between normal(control) and disease(test) samples, trying to find out those higher-frequency variants enriched for diseases.. linkage mapping/recombination mapping/positional cloning - rely on known markers (typically SNPs) that are close to the gene responsible for a disease or trait to segregate with that marker within a family. Works great for high-penetrance, single gene traits and diseases.. QTL mapping/interval mapping - for quantitative traits like height that are polygenic. Same as linkage mapping except the phenotype is continuous and the markers are put into a scoring scheme to measure their contribution - i.e. marker effects or allelic contribution. Big in agriculture.. GWAS/linkage disequilibrium mapping - score thousands of SNPs at once from a population ...
Building on previous work (Skene et al., 2014), we show that a new ChIP-seq protocol provides superior resolution and ease of use at low sequence depth of coverage for generating genome-wide maps of protein binding.
The use of the MRI-navigation system ensures accurate targeting of TMS. This, in turn, results in TMS motor mapping becoming a routinely used procedure in neuroscience and neurosurgery. However, currently, there is no standardized methodology for assessment of TMS motor-mapping results. Therefore, we developed TMSmap-free standalone graphical interface software for the quantitative analysis of the TMS motor mapping results (http://tmsmap.ru/). In addition to the estimation of standard parameters (such as the size of cortical muscle representation and the center of gravity location), it allows estimation of the volume of cortical representations, excitability profile of the cortical surface map, and the overlap between cortical representations. The input data for the software includes the coordinates of the coil position (or electric field maximum) and the corresponding response in each stimulation point. TMSmap has been developed for versatile assessment and comparison of TMS maps relating to different

A linkage study aims at establishing linkage between genes. Linkage is the tendency for genes and other genetic markers to be inherited together because of their location near one another on the same chromosome. A genetic marker is simply a segment of DNA with an identifiable physical location on a chromosome whose inheritance can be followed. A genetic marker can have a function and thus be a gene. Or a marker can be a section of DNA with no known function. Because DNA segments that lie near each other on a chromosome tend to be inherited together, markers are often used as tools for tracking the inheritance pattern of a gene that has not yet been identified but whose approximate location is known. The statistical estimate of whether two loci are likely to lie near each other on a chromosome and are therefore likely to be inherited together is called a LOD score. A LOD score of 3 or more is generally taken to indicate that the two loci are linked and are close to one another. Today linkage ...

The three polypeptides are 223, 228, and 217 residues long, respectively, and are encoded by three genes. DNA probes for mouse C1q A, B, and C chains were hybridized to Southern blots of DNA obtained from various inbred mouse strains. On the basis of fragment length polymorphisms, two different alleles of each of the genes could be identified. The distribution of these alleles was determined in the BXD and LXPL recombinant inbred strain series. Comparison with previously reported strain distribution patterns shows that the genes encoding mouse C1q map to the same locus on distal chromosome 4. Overlapping clones spanning the entire gene cluster of C1q were isolated from genomic libraries using specific cDNA probes. The three genes C1qA, C1qB, and C1qC are closely arranged on a 19 kilobase stretch of DNA in the 5 to 3 orientation A-C-B. Each gene consists of two exons separated ...
mes are folded into the cell nucleus in a non-random fashion. In yeast cells the Rabl model is used to describe the folded state of interphase chromosomes in terms of tethering interactions of the centromeres and the telomeres with the nuclear periphery. By combining theory and experiments, we assess the importance of chromosome tethering in determining the spatial location of genes within the interphase yeast nucleus. Using a well-established polymer model of yeast chromosomes to compute the spatial distributions of several genetic loci, we demonstrate that telomere tethering strongly affects the positioning of genes within the first 10 kb of the telomere. Further increasing the distance of the gene from the telomere reduces the effect of the attachment at the nuclear envelope exponentially fast with a characteristic distance of 20 kb. We test these predictions experimentally using fluorescently labeled genetic loci on chromosome III in wild type and in two mutant yeast strains with altered ...
Using high-resolution genetic mapping techniques, we have restricted the position of the Lps gene to a 0.9-cM region of chromosome 4, flanked proximally by D4Nds9 and distally by D4Mit178. A 1.7-Mb cloned DNA contig spanning this interval was sequentially assembled using YAC, BAC, and P1 clones. Our data differ significantly from another recently published physical map encompassing the Lps locus ((37)). In this contig, a gap (estimated at 100 kb by fluorescence in situ hybridization) exists in the BAC contig between D4Nds9 and D4Mit178. Comparison of BAC clone addresses common to both maps suggests that this gap corresponds to the center of our contig, and is ∼950 kb in size. Finally, through cDNA selection and nucleotide sequencing of randomly cloned sheared BACs from our contig, we have identified three transcription units within the Lps candidate region, including Tlr4, and two novel genes.. We provide evidence that implicates mouse Tlr4 as a critical regulator of the innate host response ...

The Human Proteome Project has been proposed to create a knowledge-based resource based on a systematical mapping of all human proteins, chromosome by chromosome, in a gene-centric manner. With this background, we here describe the systematic analysis of chromosome 21 using an antibody-based approach for protein profiling using both confocal microscopy and immunohistochemistry, complemented with transcript profiling using next generation sequencing data. We also describe a new approach for protein isoform analysis using a combination of antibody-based probing and isoelectric focusing. The analysis has identified several genes on chromosome 21 with no previous evidence on the protein level, and the isoform analysis indicates that a large fraction of human proteins have multiple isoforms. A chromosome-wide matrix is presented with status for all chromosome 21 genes regarding subcellular localization, tissue distribution, and molecular characterization of the corresponding proteins. The path to ...

Understanding the recombination patterns across a chromosome determining the positions and frequency of genetic exchanges between homologous chromosomes is crucial for understanding and tracking inheritance of traits. Mapping genes that affect parasites traits, such as responses to various antimalarial agents, is possible because, during meiosis, homologous chromosomes line up and may exchange segments. Genes or any polymorphic bits of DNA that are close together tend to remain linked during this process, while those far apart tend to become separated. Identifying and following polymorphic markers through multiple generations is a key technique for genetic mapping ...
Provides interactive, configurable and elegant graphics visualization of the chromosomes or chromosome regions of any living organism allowing users to map chromosome elements (like genes, SNPs etc.) on the chromosome plot. It introduces a special plot viz. the chromosome heatmap that, in addition to mapping elements, can visualize the data associated with chromosome elements (like gene expression) in the form of heat colors which can be highly advantageous in the scientific interpretations and research work. Because of the large size of the chromosomes, it is impractical to visualize each element on the same plot. However, the plot provides a magnified view for each of chromosome locus to render additional information and visualization specific for that location. You can map thousands of genes and can view all mappings easily. Users can investigate the detailed information about the mappings (like gene names or total genes mapped on a location) or can view the magnified single or double ...

Gene research into breast cancer. A grid of DNA fragments is seen, making up human chromosome 17. Scientists have isolated chromosome 17 to be the site of a defective gene responsible for many cases of inherited breast cancer. This grid represents 20,736 (144x144) pieces of DNA, each of 40 kilobase length, which have been spotted onto filter paper. An X-ray plate has been superimposed onto the grid, showing some DNA fragments tagged with a radioactive marker (dark spots). These tagged DNA fragments, which may correspond to genes, have been hybridised (attached) to specific parts of chromosome 17. It is a technique which enables researchers to map genes on a chromosome. - Stock Image G210/0464
A general tendency for additivity prevailed in recombination frequencies for two-point fine-structure mapping of 14 mutants in the C cistron of Rhizobium meliloti phage 16-3, with little evidence of any marker effect. Intracistronic three-point mapping indicated that double crossovers are rare. Deletion mapping indicated that the two- and three-point mapping data gave the correct order of the mutations. A high frequency (5 to 8%) of c/c+ heterozygotic phage progenies was observed in standard crosses. This pattern implies formation of a relatively long region of heterozygosity. Together with the results of the three-point tests, it suggests certain properties of the branch migration and resolution steps envisioned in current mechanisms of recombination.. ...

Each chromosome is made up of a DNA molecule, but what does a DNA molecule actually look like and how does it store information?. Abnormality in three groups of genes, including in enzyme activity, calcium ion binding and protein binding associate genes… These data, and many Web sites on human genetic disorders, are freely accessible on the Internet. Sequence analysis indicated that they have homologous genes on chromosomes 1, 4 and 10, respectively (Table 2), and that the seven relatively short fragments might also have been derived from A-genome genes, with their A-homologues located on chromosomes 1, 3, 8 and 9 (Additional file 7: Table S3). Another gain of function mutation of IL7R is associated with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Mazzucchelli et al., 2012). Genes are the units of heredity; They are arranged in a linear fashion along chromosomes. The positions can then be assembled in a single probabilistic representation of the genes localization in nuclear space (Fig. Bacterial ...
The molecular marker analysis positioned each deletion breakpoint relative to a defined region on the current MGD/CCR genetic map. This analysis did not identify deletions in addition to the previously characterized 17Pub with breakpoints useful for further refining the ∼0.8-cM functional interval associated with perturbed mesoderm development leading to midgestational lethality of the 1Acrg mutant embryo (Welsh and OBrien 2000). However, a 1.4-Mb BAC contig has been assembled over this critical region and is being used for the identification of candidate genes (Kuriharaet al. 2000). Several of the deletion breakpoints were positioned within the previously characterized functional intervals associated with genes that are essential for newborn survival and normal skeletal and CNS development. In these regions, all of the available D14Mit SSLP markers or STS markers derived from BAC ends were used to construct higher resolution maps (Figures 2 and 3). The ordering of the breakpoints within ...
Each QTL identified in the crosses of inbred mice generally spans a large genomic distance, sometimes almost an entire chromosome. In complex phenotypes such as atherosclerosis, where a large number of genes are involved, transferring a target region onto an inbred background and creating congenic line is a powerful step toward identifying causative genes. Here we have analyzed the effect of the atherosclerosis QTL Aath4 by establishing a congenic line (Aath4aDBA/DBA), where the 5′ region of DBA Aath4 was backcrossed onto a 129S6-Apoe−/− background. As expected, the resulting Aath4aDBA/DBA males had significantly larger plaques, and macrophages isolated from these mice exhibited reduced efferocytosis as a consequence of allele-specific decrease in MERTK expression. Together, our results provide strong evidence that the increased susceptibility to atherosclerosis determined by the DBA allele of Aath4 is, at least in part, due to decreased MERTK expression.. MERTK is known to play a ...

The transcriptome connects genome to the gene function and ultimate phenome in biology. Sofar, transcriptomic approach was not used in peanut for performing trait mapping in bi-parentalpopulations. In this research, we sequenced the whole transcriptome in immature seeds in apeanut recombinant inbred line (RIL) population and explored thoroughly the landscape oftranscriptomic variations and its genetic basis. The comprehensive analysis identified total49 691 genes in RIL population, of which 92 genes followed a paramutation-like expressionpattern. Expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) analysis identified 1207 local eQTLs and15 837 distant eQTLs contributing to the whole-genome transcriptomic variation in peanut.There were 94 eQTL hot spot regions detected across the genome with the dominance of distanteQTL.

AU - Van Keuren, Margaret L.. AU - Blomberg, Bonnie B.. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2007 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 1993/9. Y1 - 1993/9. N2 - The human immunoglobulin lambda-like (IGLL) genes, which are homologous to the human immunoglobulin lambda (IGL) light chain genes, are expressed only in pre-B cells and are involved in B cell development. Three IGLL genes, 14.1, 16.1, and 16.2 are present in humans as opposed to one, λ5 (Igll), found in the mouse. To precisely map the location of the human IGLL genes in relation to each other and to the human IGL gene locus, at 22q11.1-2, a somatic cell hybrid panel and pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) were used. Hybridization with a λ-like gene-specific DNA probe to somatic cell hybrids revealed that these genes reside on 22q11.2 between the breakpoint ...
OBJECTIVE: To test a high density of microsatellite markers from within a primary osteoarthritis (OA) locus on chromosome 6 for association with OA as a means of narrowing and focusing our search for the susceptibility gene. METHODS: One hundred forty-six families, each with 2 or more women concordant for primary OA (ascertained by total hip replacement), were genotyped for 36 microsatellite markers from within a narrow interval at 6p12.3-q13 which we had previously shown to be linked to OA. Each marker was tested for linkage and for association, the latter by means of the transmission disequilibrium test and by a case-control analysis. RESULTS: The highest 2-point logarithm of odds (LOD) score was 4.8, with 11 markers having LOD scores | or =2.0. Several markers demonstrated evidence of association, in particular, a cluster of markers positioned within or near the functional candidate gene BMP5. CONCLUSION: Our linkage data reinforce the evidence of a major susceptibility locus on chromosome 6. We had
We assembled the first chromosome level linkage map for the Australian snapper Chrysophrys auratus. Proof checking the marker order against the snapper de novo genome assembly indicated that the linkage groups were of high quality. QTL mapping revealed eight markers on three linkage groups that were significantly associated with growth. Three candidate genes for growth were located on the same linkage groups as these QTL. These genomic resources will be used to inform the selective breeding program in New Zealand and will form the basis of further genomic investigation in snapper.. Linkage maps are essential for genomic and genetic studies, and have been used extensively to derive the order and spatial position of markers (Cnaani et al. 2004; Greenwood et al. 2011; Boulton et al. 2011). Historically, most first generation linkage maps in fish have been constructed with just a handful or a few hundred markers and did not have genome sequences available to evaluate marker order (Castaño-Sánchez ...
The Lith1 region on Chromosome (Chr) 2 contains a gene that markedly affects the prevalence of cholesterol gallstones in inbred mice. We report the high-resolution genetic and radiation hybrid maps of the chromosomal region surrounding Lith1, using three resources: a DNA panel from 188 progeny from two reciprocal backcrosses between C57BL/6 and Mus spretus inbred strains; 423 progeny of an N4 generation from backcrossing the susceptible C57L/J alleles at Lith1 into the resistant AKR/J strain; and the newly developed hamster-mouse T31 radiation hybrid panel. We mapped 17 microsatellite markers in the D2Mit182 to D2Mit14 region and two candidate genes for Lith1, the canalicular bile salt export pump (Bsep) also known as sister of P-glycoprotein (Spgp) and the low-density-lipoprotein-receptor-related gene megalin (Gp330). Both genetic maps were in agreement and ordered the microsatellite markers into a 10.4 +/- 1.5 cM region. The high-resolution physical map revealed ordering of microsatellite
The present study was undertaken to identify genes that influence LDL size properties. Although LDL size phenotype has been shown in many studies to be an important CVD risk factor, little is known about the genes that influence LDL size properties. In this study, we used gradient gel electrophoresis to measure the amount of cholesterol in each of 4 different LDL size fractions, and performed mixing experiments to show that LDL particles that differed in size and composition have similar chromogenicities for cholesterol staining (Figure 1⇑). For each of the 4 LDL size fractions, we found significant heritabilities, which ranged from 22% to 37% (Table 1⇑), suggesting the existence of 1 or more genes that influence each of the 4 fractions. These measures of LDL size fractions were also significantly influenced by several covariates, including age and sex. The LDL size fractions are related metabolically36 and they are significantly intercorrelated phenotypically (r2 values for the 6 possible ...
Bovine chromosomes 2 (BTA2) and 5 (BTA5) of purebred, half-sib progeny sired by five Japanese black bulls were genotyped using microsatellite DNA markers. The data were subjected to linkage analysis for the detection and mapping of segregating quantitative trait loci (QTL) influencing live weight, average daily gain and body measurements at weaning. Probability coefficients of inheriting allele 1 or 2 from the sire at specific chromosomal intervals were computed. The phenotypic data on progeny were regressed on these probability coefficients in a within-common-parent regression analysis. Fixed effects of sex, parity and season of birth as well as age as a covariate, were fitted in a linear model to the phenotypic data and subsequently analysed using QTL Express by generating an F-statistic through permutation tests at chromosome-wide significance thresholds over 10, 000 iterations at 1 cM intervals. Highly significant (P<0.01) segregating QTL for body measurements were detected on BTA2 for hip
Chromosome mappingChromosome mapping is the assignment of genes to specific locations on a chromosome. A gene map serves many important functions and is much like understanding the basic human anatomy to allow doctors to diagnose patients with disease . A doctor requires knowledge of where each organ is located as well as the function of this organ to understand disease.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Mapping of Mammalian Genomes with Radiation (Goss and Harris) Hybrids. AU - Leach, Robin J.. AU - OConnell, Peter. PY - 1995/1/1. Y1 - 1995/1/1. N2 - This chapter describes the use of radiation hybrids for constructing high-resolution maps of the human genome. Radiation hybrids have recently been implemented for mouse mapping and have been found to have a higher level of resolution compared to that of interspecies meiotic mapping panels. The chapter presents the advantages and disadvantages of the two different types of radiation hybrid panels. One advantage of the chromosome-specific panels is their reduced complexity. Because the human component in the hybrids is derived from a single chromosome or a reduced number of chromosomes, the hybrid can be used as a resource for chromosome-specific marker isolation. Using methods, such as interspersed repetitive sequence-polymerase chain reaction (IRS-PCR) to obtain the human sequences has greatly improved their usefulness. Moreover, ...
The objective of this study was to confirm a quantitative trait locus for milk production described in a previous study on bovine chromosome 20 using an independent sample. A total of 1191 progeny tested bulls were analyzed for six microsatellite markers spanning bovine chromosome 20. Using multiple-marker regression, we obtained evidence (P , 0.5) for the presence of a quantitative traits locus in the same chromosomal region an affecting the same trait as described in the first study, therefore confirming genuine nature of this QTL.. ...
II. The genotypes spreadsheet contains only the 400 ABI PRISM MD10 markers which would be usual for a general genome-wide linkage screen. The markers are sorted on the basis of chromosome number and genetic distance, and the values for their genetic distances and physical locations are linked to the ABI mapping panels v2.5 spreadsheet by VLOOKUP, although other spreadsheets containing marker details could be used. Figure 1 shows a small section of the genotypes spreadsheet that covers the genotyping data for chromosome 1 markers for samples 1-6.. III. Genotyping data is entered into the raw data spreadsheet. This is most easily done by saving the output from, for example, ABI PRISM Genotyper software as a tab-delimited text file that can be imported into the raw data spreadsheet in the form of four continuous columns of data. Column 1 contains the marker name (which must exactly match the name in other spreadsheets), column 2 contains the sample number (in this example 1-16; see ...
Plant height (PH) and ear height (EH) are two very important agronomic traits related to the population density and lodging in maize. In order to better understand of the genetic basis of nature variation in PH and EH, two bi-parental populations and one genome-wide association study (GWAS) population were used to map quantitative trait loci (QTL) for both traits. Phenotypic data analysis revealed a wide normal distribution and high heritability for PH and EH in the three populations, and indicated that maize height is a highly polygenic trait. A total of 21 QTL for PH and EH in three common genomic regions (bin 1.05, 5.04/05, and 6.04/05) were identified by QTL mapping in the two bi-parental populations under multiple environments. Additionally, 41 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified for PH and EH by GWAS, of which 29 SNPs were located in 19 unique candidate gene regions. Most of the candidate genes were related to plant growth and development. One QTL on Chromosome 1 was further
Here we report a technique of laser chromosome welding that uses a violet pulse laser micro-beam for welding. The technique can integrate any size of a desired chromosome fragment into recipient chromosomes by combining with other techniques of laser chromosome manipulation such as chromosome cutting, moving, and stretching. We demonstrated that our method could perform chromosomal modifications with high precision, speed and ease of use in the absence of restriction enzymes, DNA ligases and DNA polymerases. Unlike the conventional methods such as de novo artificial chromosome synthesis, our method has no limitation on the size of the inserted chromosome fragment. The inserted DNA size can be precisely defined and the processed chromosome can retain its intrinsic structure and integrity. Therefore, our technique provides a high quality alternative approach to directed genetic recombination, and can be used for chromosomal repair, removal of defects and artificial chromosome creation. The ...
In December 1999, the HGP completed the first finished, full-length sequence of a human chromosome - chromosome 22. This accomplishment demonstrated the power of the HGP method of clone-by-clone sequencing to obtain large amounts of highly accurate sequence. In the clone-by-clone approach, clones of human DNA, such as bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs), that have a precisely known location on a physical map are the starting points for DNA sequencing reactions. Researchers chose to finish chromosome 22 first because it is relatively small and because highly detailed maps of 22 had already been constructed.. The sequence of chromosome 22 gave scientists their first ever view of the organization of an entire chromosome. The sequencing effort concentrated on the long arm of the chromosome. Each chromosome consists of two arms, a short arm (called p for petite) and a long arm (called q). In the case of chromosome 22, the q arm happens to be very rich in genes. The sequence from the long ...
To create this landmark map, Comeron and colleagues generated recombinant advanced intercross lines (RAIL), derived from eight crosses among twelve wild-derived lines. To accurately identify crossover and noncrossover events, haplotype rather than genotype data are required, and Comeron and colleagues use a clever technique to recover haplotypes. RAIL females were individually crossed to D. simulans, and the genomes of single hybrid progeny were sequenced with Illumina technology. Reads mapping to D. simulans were removed bioinformatically to reveal a haploid, meiotically produced D. melanogaster genome. In all, over 100,000 recombination events were localized with kilobase-level precision.. Certainly, this genome-wide recombination map will empower population genetic and molecular evolutionary studies in Drosophila for years to come. However, the sheer number of events catalogued combined with the resolution at which breakpoints could be mapped facilitates a great deal more than quantifying ...
Rag6 and Rag3c were delimited to a 49-kb interval on chromosome 8 and a 150-kb interval on chromosome 16, respectively. Structural variants in the exons of candidate genes were identified.. The soybean aphid, an invasive species, has significantly threatened soybean production in North America since 2000. Host-plant resistance is known as an ideal management strategy for aphids. Two novel aphid-resistance loci, Rag6 and Rag3c, from Glycine soja 85-32, were previously detected in a 10.5-cM interval on chromosome 8 and a 7.5-cM interval on chromosome 16, respectively. Defining the exact genomic position of these two genes is critical for improving the effectiveness of marker-assisted selection for aphid resistance and for identification of the functional genes. To pinpoint the locations of Rag6 and Rag3c, four populations segregating for Rag6 and Rag3c were used to fine map these two genes. The availability of the Illumina Infinium SoySNP50K/8K iSelect BeadChip, combined with single-nucleotide ...
Maps and/or signs are embedded with plural-bit data in the form of digital watermarks. In one implementation, an apparatus is provided to read two or more digital watermarks embedded within a map. Each of the two or more digital watermarks includes location information for a respective map location. The two or more digital watermarks are embedded through alterations to data representing the map; the alterations are generally imperceptible to a human observer of the map. The apparatus includes: a global positioning system receiver to determine a physical location of said apparatus; an input to receive data corresponding to at least a portion of the respective map area; a processor or electronic processing circuitry to extract the location information from the input data and to correlate the physical location with the extracted location information; and an output to output an indication of a relative correlation between the physical location and watermark location information. Other implementations are
A genetic component in the etiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has clearly been demonstrated by epidemiological and genetic linkage studies. Linkage to IBD on proximal Chromosome (Chr) 16p is well established and replicated. A stratification experiment showed that the recent identification of a disease gene on the q arm does not interfere with the approach on the p arm, and the linkage peak is still significant. Here we present a candidate gene study of the alpha integrins (CD11A-D) on Chr 16. The alpha integrins play a key role in inflammatory processes, including leukocyte adhesion and migration. Their genes are located on the p arm of Chr 16, and therefore represent excellent positional and functional candidates. Since the assignment of the CD11 genes in the genome was not clear, we performed physical, radiation hybrid, and fluorescent in situ hybridization mapping of the gene family. All CD11 genes map on Chr 16p11-12. CD11B-D are arranged in a gene cluster within 300 kb and CD11A ...
Clinical mastitis is an inflammation of the mammary gland and causes significant costs to dairy production. It is unfavourably genetically correlated to milk production, and, thus, knowledge of the mechanisms that underlie these traits would be valuable to improve both of them simultaneously through breeding. A quantitative trait locus (QTL) that affects both clinical mastitis and milk production has recently been fine-mapped to around 89 Mb on bovine chromosome 6 (BTA6), but identification of the gene that underlies this QTL was not possible due to the strong linkage disequilibrium between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within this region. Our aim was to identify the gene and, if possible, the causal polymorphism(s) responsible for this QTL through association analysis of high-density SNPs and imputed full sequence data in combination with analyses of transcript and protein levels of the identified candidate gene. Associations between SNPs and the studied traits were strongest for SNPs that
Simply put, chromosomes are the structures that hold our genes. Genes are the individual instructions that tell our bodies how to develop and keep our bodies running healthy. In every cell of our body there are 20,000 to 25,000* genes that are located on 46 chromosomes. These 46 chromosomes occur as 23 pairs. We get one of each pair from our mother in the egg, and one of each pair from our father in the sperm. The first 22 pairs are labeled longest to shortest. The last pair are called the sex chromosomes labeled X or Y. Females have two X chromosomes (XX), and males have an X and a Y chromosome (XY). Therefore everyone should have 46 chromosomes in every cell of their body. If a chromosome or piece of a chromosome is missing or duplicated, there are missing or extra genes respectively. When a person has missing or extra information (genes) problems can develop for that individuals health and development. Each chromosomes has a p and q arm; p (petit) is the short arm and q (next letter in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Eigenanalysis of DAPI-stained chromosomes. T2 - Tools and strategies toward computer-assisted analysis of FISH experiments. AU - Knapp, R. D.. AU - Smith, L. C.. AU - Baldini, A.. PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - The fluorescent dye 4,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) is widely used as a chromosome counterstain in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) studies. It produces a Q-banding pattern that allows for both chromosome identification and the assignment of molecular probes to specific chromosome bands. Using a statistical procedure based on eigenanalysis, we have extracted features from digital images of DAPI-stained chromosomes and constructed prototypes of each of the 24 human chromosomes. The features of these prototypes are directly proportional, in intensity profile and band location, to those of real chromosomes. The prototypes intensity profile can be translated into cytogenetic bands to provide a computer-based strategy for chromosome mapping and analysis amenable to ...
Bulk segregant analysis (BSA) coupled to high throughput sequencing is a powerful method to map genomic regions related with phenotypes of interest. It relies on crossing two parents, one inferior and one superior for a trait of interest. Segregants displaying the trait of the superior parent are pooled, the DNA extracted and sequenced. Genomic regions linked to the trait of interest are identified by searching the pool for overrepresented alleles that normally originate from the superior parent. BSA data analysis is non-trivial due to sequencing, alignment and screening errors. To increase the power of the BSA technology and obtain a better distinction between spuriously and truly linked regions, we developed EXPLoRA (EXtraction of over-rePresented aLleles in BSA), an algorithm for BSA data analysis that explicitly models the dependency between neighboring marker sites by exploiting the properties of linkage disequilibrium through a Hidden Markov Model (HMM). Reanalyzing a BSA dataset for high ethanol
Detection of QTL in outbred half-sib family structures has mainly been based on interval mapping of single QTL on individual chromosomes. Methods to account for linked and unlinked QTL have been developed, but most of them are only applicable in designs with inbred species or pose great demands on c …

Background: The uneven distribution of recombination across the length of chromosomes results in inaccurate estimates of genetic to physical distances. In wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) chromosome 3B, it has been estimated that 90% of the cross over events occur in distal sub-telomeric regions representing 40% of the chromosome. Radiation hybrid (RH) mapping which does not rely on recombination is a strategy to map genomes and has been widely employed in animal species and more recently in some plants. RH maps have been proposed to provide i) higher and ii) more uniform resolution than genetic maps, and iii) to be independent of the distribution patterns observed for meiotic recombination. An in vivo RH panel was generated for mapping chromosome 3B of wheat in an attempt to provide a complete scaffold for this ~1 Gb segment of the genome and compare the resolution to previous genetic maps. Results: A high density RH map with 541 marker loci anchored to chromosome 3B spanning a total distance of ...

Crohn disease (CD) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract. Recently, polymorphisms in NOD2 (CARD15), a gene mapping to the chromosome 16 IBD1 susceptibility locus, have been associated with susceptibility to CD. One group identified the gene by using classic positional cloning methods. Here, we report linkage and fine mapping analyses using 27 microsatellite markers encompassing the IBD1 susceptibility locus in 131 CD affected sibling pairs, and a simplex family cohort. No evidence for linkage was observed, and microsatellite markers close to NOD2 did not show association. However, significant association was confirmed in 294 CD trios for the NOD2 variants Arg702Trp and Leu1007fsinsC. Our fine mapping study of the IBD1 locus did not enable us to identify NOD2 as a CD gene, despite the presence of association with disease-causing alleles. This study illustrates the difficulties facing microsatellite linkage and linkage disequilibrium mapping methods for identifying
The aim of this study was to estimate the accuracy and convergence of newly developed barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) genomic resources, primarily genome zipper (GZ) and population sequencing (POPSEQ), at the genome-wide level and to assess their usefulness in applied barley breeding by analyzing seven known loci. Comparison of barley GZ and POPSEQ maps to a newly developed consensus genetic map constructed with data from 13 individual linkage maps yielded an accuracy of 97.8% (GZ) and 99.3% (POPSEQ), respectively, regarding the chromosome assignment. The percentage of agreement in marker position indicates that on average only 3.7% GZ and 0.7% POPSEQ positions are not in accordance with their centimorgan coordinates in the consensus map. The fine-scale comparison involved seven genetic regions on chromosomes 1H, 2H, 4H, 6H, and 7H, harboring major genes and quantitative trait loci (QTL) for disease resistance. In total, 179 GZ loci were analyzed and 64 polymorphic markers were developed. Entirely, ...
We analyzed a large group of Finnish type 2 diabetic families and found evidence for linkage to chromosome 20. Three linkage peaks were seen after analyses of diabetes and diabetes-related traits. These linkages were at approximately 0-25 cM, 50-60 cM, and 63-72 cM respectively from the marker D20S103. Although the second and third peaks could be explained by a single susceptibility locus, evidence for linkage on both arms on chromosome 20 argues for the presence of more than one susceptibility locus. As far as we know, we are the first group to show evidence for linkage to the proximal p arm of chromosome 20 in type 2 diabetes. Most of our evidence comes from families with affected sibships greater than two. Ordered subset analyses of our data revealed that a small number of families, with high or low values of important diabetes-related traits, give rise to large lod scores near the three peaks. These analyses provide additional evidence for more than one susceptibility locus on this ...
Original text and figures were provided by N. Kurata). Chromosome number of cultivated rice was reported as 2n=24 by Kuwada in 1910. Until 1930 this number was confirmed by the observation of rice chromosomes at meiosis. However, due to the extreme smallness, the morphology and structure of rice chromosomes remained unclear and no karyotype analysis was reported until the1970s. Only some attempts of morphological identification based on the figures at pachytene stage in meiosis were reported in this period.. In 1978, Kurata and Omura (1978) invented a new method of chromosome preparation technique, with which karyotype analysis on rice chromosomes was first conducted and identification of all twelve chromosomes became realized. Furthermore, all extra chromosomes of 12 trisomics series of rice (2n=24+1) were identified with this method by Kurata et al. (1981) and Iwata et al. (1984) so that the relationship between the linkage group based on the genes and the chromosomes on which the genes were ...
Descrição: We constructed a metric linkage disequilibrium (LD) map of bovine chromosome 6 (BTA6) on the basis of data from 220 SNPs genotyped on 433 Australian dairy bulls. This metric LD map has distances in LD units (LDUs) that are analogous to centimorgans in linkage maps. The LD map of BTA6 has a total length of 8.9 LDUs. Within the LD map, regions of high LD (represented as blocks) and regions of low LD (steps) are observed, when plotted against the integrated map in kilobases. At the most stringent block definition, namely a set of loci with zero LDU increase over the span of these markers, BTA6 comprises 40 blocks, accounting for 41% of the chromosome. At a slightly lower stringency of block definition (a set of loci covering a maximum of 0.2 LDUs on the LD map), up to 81% of BTA6 is spanned by 46 blocks and with 13 steps that are likely to reflect recombination hot spots. The mean swept radius (the distance over which LD is likely to be useful for mapping) is 13.3 Mb, confirming ...

Everyone has 23 pairs of chromosomes, 22 pairs of autosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes. The science that relates to the study of these chromosomes is referred to as Cytogenetics. Our tests that we offer, analyzes the whole chromosome and identifies any disorders present.. Why do a Cytogenic Test?. There are many disorders that can be diagnosed by examining a persons whole chromosome.. Chromosome abnormalities constitute a major category of medical genetic disorders. In a clinical setting, chromosome abnormalities account for a large proportion of cases involving individuals referred with congenital malformations, developmental delay, mental retardation, or infertility; women with gonadal dysgenesis; spontaneous abortions, and couples with repeated spontaneous miscarriages.. Cytogenetic laboratories provide microscopic studies of human chromosomes in order to diagnose abnormalities in prenatal/postnatal and cancer specimens. The studies involve analyzing chromosomes found in blood, bone ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A new chromosome region possibly derived from double minutes in an in vitro transformed epithelial cell line. AU - Cowell, J. K.. PY - 1980. Y1 - 1980. N2 - Double minute chromosomes (DMs) are reported for the first time in in vitro transformed mouse epithelial cells. In one cell line, CSG 122/17, DMs persisted through numerous passages. A subpopulation appeared in this line at passage 23, in which the DMs had disappeared but were replaced by a finely banded chromosome region possibly associated with the distal end of chromosome 5. In a second cell line, CSG 120/7, there was no evidence of DMs in the earliest frozen stock available. However, a finely banded region similar to that found in CSG 122/17 was present and was again associated with chromosome 5, in this case with the proximal end. The possible evolution of these new chromosome regions from DMs is discussed.. AB - Double minute chromosomes (DMs) are reported for the first time in in vitro transformed mouse epithelial ...
To facilitate large-scale genetic mapping of the human genome, we have developed chromosome-specific sets of microsatellite marker loci suitable for use with a fluorescence-based automated DNA fragment analyser. We present 254 dinucleotide repeat marker loci (80% from the Genethon genetic linkage map) arranged into 39 sets, covering all 22 autosomes and the X chromosome. The average distance between adjacent markers is 13 centiMorgans, and less than 4% of the genome lies more than 20 cM from the nearest marker. Each set of microsatellites consists of up to nine marker loci, with allele size ranges that do not overlap. We selected marker loci on the basis of their reliability in the polymerase chain reaction, polymorphism content, map position and the accuracy with which alleles can be scored automatically by the Genotyper(TM) program ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a complex disease that involves both environmental and genetic factors. Elucidation of the basic etiologic factors involved in RA is essential for preventing and treating this disease. However, the etiology of RA, like that of other complex diseases, is largely unknown. In the present study, we conducted autosomal multipoint linkage scans using affected sib pairs by incorporating the smoking status into analysis. We divided the affected sib pairs into three subgroups based on smoking status (ever, current, or never). Interactions between the susceptibility genes and smoking could then be assessed through linkage mapping. Results suggested that the genetic effect of chromosome 6p21.2-3 in concordant current smoker pairs was about two-fold greater than that of the concordant non-current smoker pairs or discordant pairs. With incorporation of smoking status, additional regions with evidence of linkage were identified, including chromosomes 4q and 20q; while evidence of linkage
