Genome Mapping

  • Jacqueline Boultwood
Part of the Springer Protocols Handbooks book series (SPH)


The genome maps of a small number of prokaryotes have been completed. In recent years, efforts have been made to map the entire mouse and human genomes; indeed the human-genome project-a global effort to clone, sequence, and map the human genome-represents the most ambitious and challenging task of modem human biology.
