Sentences with chromosome-mapping


1. Noun Phrase
Linkage mapping and chromosome mapping are two methods used to understand genes and DNA – methods that are similar enough to be confused, but easy to understand with a bit of explanation.

2. Noun Phrase
The core difference between the two types of mapping is that linkage mapping charts the placement of genes relative to related genes that form a phenotype, while chromosome mapping charts individual genes on a static chromosome.
