(My parents, by the way, show up as distant cousins--not a shock given the proximity of their grandfathers' hometowns.) I combed through centimorgan relationships, surnames and place origins, and contacted promising leads.
A genome-wide screening was carried out using 386 microsatellite markers, distributed with an average spacing of 10 centimorgan on 22 chromosomes, excluding X and Y (ABI Prism Linkage Mapping Set 2, Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA, USA).

High-resolution mapping efforts began in the late 1990s, using animals with identical genetic backgrounds that differ only in a relatively small segment of DNA (i.e., interval-specific congenic strains) to narrow relatively large QTL intervals to regions of less than 1 centiMorgan (cM) containing only a few genes.
Os SNPs podem ser usados para cobrir o genoma de um organismo, gerando marcas que estao, no maximo, a 1cM (centimorgan) umas das outras.
It is estimated that there are one million DNA base pairs in 1 centiMorgan (unit of recombination, or 1% probability of crossover).
