has made it possible to see where the virus hits.
In addition, the knowledge of gene mapping
may be used for the design of new therapeutics, including gene therapy, based on DNA sequence information.
The ambitious enterprise began with a meeting called the International Gene Mapping
Workshop, held in Lexington, Kentucky in 1995.
It's not hard to imagine the citizens of Pennsylvania or North Dakota shaking their heads at the bill's funding of a barley gene mapping
project at Oregon State University or the remodeling of a cafeteria at Crater Lake National Park.
Chugh says, "What we now need is to find out who lives at each address, and what they do for a living." High-density gene mapping
and examination of functional pathways and genomic structures are the best ways to identify genetic susceptibilities to lethal arrhythmias.
The researchers, who included gene mapping
pioneer Dr Craig Venter, used a male standard poodle as their DNA source.
Experts believe these 'next generation' scientists will be vital to making sense of complex computer data tied to gene mapping
and understanding how healthy cells become diseased.
The topics can be put loosely into five categories: gene mapping
(including discovery, identification, and localization), expression profiling, protein structure and function, gene therapy, and bioinformatics.
The scientific community has determined that the goal of identifying genes that cause defects will be best advanced through procedures known as gene mapping
and gene sequencing.
RECENT developments in the biological sciences, including genomics, the science of gene mapping
and manipulation, have the potential to change human life in ways that make the industrial revolution look like a Sunday school picnic.
Hall believes that aggressive investors "who are well versed in such issues as gene mapping
" make good candidates for investing in a specialized biotech funds.
"Now we can use either marker-assisted selection to integrate those genes into breeding nucleuses to create less aggressive hogs, or we can clone the genes by using fine gene mapping
techniques," Muir says.
