The charity's Nell Barrie said: "This study shows how the genetic map
of breast cancer that scientists have been building up over the years might be used to identify women most at risk, so we can take steps to reduce their chances of developing the disease or catch it at the earliest possible stage.
Our dream is to use this model to make a genetic map
of human germ-cell differentiation, including some of the very earliest stages," Pera said.
The KACST also accomplished 85 percent of Date Palm Genome Project (DPGP) in a joint effort with King Faisal University and Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing Institute of Genomics)," he said, indicating that the DPGP aims to prepare a physical genetic map
of date palm plant, in addition to finding the structural characteristics of its genome, the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and the genetic map
of all genes based on the SNPs and the Short Single Repeats (SSRs).
demonstrated that a fetal genomewide genetic map
could be assembled by using a combination of DNA-sequencing data from maternal plasma and genetic maps
of the parents (2).
Scientists at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS), a world-class research centre at Aberystwyth University, developed the first high density genetic map
of the energy crop Miscanthus ('elephant grass').
RESEARCHERS in Wales and the US have compiled the first full genetic map
of miscanthus, a crop commonly used for biomass.
With its new technology, TMC successfully created a sugar-cane genetic map
five times more accurate than previous maps, making it possible to identify the positions of genes and to use that information to create better sugar cane.
By comparing the results, the scientists drew a genetic map
that identifies key molecular markers along a region of the soybean genome known as Linkage Group I.
These QTLs--named "ZmPRI-4" by the researchers--represent 2 percent of the genetic map
The genetic maps
presented here will serve as a preliminary groundwork for the construction of a high-resolution genetic map
The conclusions come from a project that has produced the first ever full genetic map
of the Australian marsupial.
