Abstract

The recent introduction of biochemical and molecular methods for characterizing and mapping genes has dramatically increased the number of homologous genes that have been mapped in more than one species. This review assesses the status of the map of genes whose chromosomal locations have been determined in both mouse and man, evaluates progress towards saturated maps, and illustrates the manner in which this information is now being used in fields as diverse as medical and evolutionary genetics.
