What are genetic maps of chromosomes? What are the prospects for their use?

Genetic maps of chromosomes are a diagram of a linear sequence of genes in one linkage group and relative distances between them. Mapping is based on the constancy of percent crossing-over between specific genes. Genetic maps are compiled for each pair of homologous chromosomes. They are used in selection when predicting the possibility of obtaining organisms with a certain combination of characters. They are the basis for genetic engineering, as well as use in medicine for the diagnosis of severe hereditary human diseases.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
