Introduction to positional cloning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The most common procedure for isolating genes that predispose to a certain disease is positional cloning. This process is initiated by mapping the responsible gene to its location on a chromosome linked to the disease. Successive cloning of the region results in the isolation of candidate genes. Finally, identification of mutations by mutational analysis points to the correct gene.
