Genetic mapping



(1) The process of locating and identifying genes to create a genetic map.

(2) Determination of the relative locus of genes along a chromosome (or plasmid, in case of bacteria).


Gene or genome mapping can be carried out through pedigree analysis, breeding experiments or by modern molecular biology techniques such as in physical mapping.

Synonym: gene mapping, genome mapping.
See also: genetic locus, genetic marker, genetic map.
