Inheritance of genes on the same chromosome Genes located close together on the same chromosome are called linked genes and belong to the same linkage group . Linked genes travel together during meiosis, and are not expected to assort independently. What is independent assortment?

Why is it important to obtain a map of gene positions on chromosomes? • Gene position is crucial information needed to build complex genotypes required for experimental purposes of commercial applications. • Knowing the position occupied by a gene provides a way of zeroing in on its structure and function . • The genes present and their arrangement on chromosomes are often slightly different in related species. For example, long human chromosome 2 is split into two shorter chromosomes in the great apes.

Chromosome banding is revealed by special staining techniques. Shown here is the staining of chromosomes with a special dye called Giesma, which reveals G bands that distinguish areas of DNA that are rich in adenine-thymine (A-T base pairs).

The arrangement of genes on chromosomes is represented diagrammatically as a uni-dimensional chromosome map , showing gene positions, known as loci (sing., locus) and the distances between the loci on some kind of scale. Two basic types of chromosomal maps: Recombination-based maps: map the loci of genes that have been identified by mutant phenotypes showing single-gene inheritance. We will talk about these today. Physical maps: show genes as segments arranged along the long DNA molecule that constitutes a chromosome.

terminology Linked genes in a dihybrid are present in one of two combinations: Cis (adjacent) conformation: two dominant, or wild-type, alleles are present on the same homolog Trans (opposite) conformation: on different homologs cis AB/ab or ++/ab trans Ab/aB or +b/a+ The following conventions pertain to linkage symbolism: 1. A slash symbolically separates the two homologs. 2.
