7.03 Lecture 28-30 11/17/03, 11/19/03, 11/21/03 2 The methods of genetic analysis that you have been learning are applicable to mammals — even to humans. However, we need to combine these genetic principles with an understanding of the physical realities of the human genome. To genetics we will add genomics. Eukaryotic Genes and Genomes = DNA content of a gamete (sperm or egg) genome = DNA content of a complete haploid set of chromosomes H. sapiens M. musculus D. melanogaster C. elegans S. cerevisiae E. coli genes/ haploid year sequence completed DNA content/ haploid(Mb) cM Chromosomes Species 1 16 6 4 20 23 N/A 4000 300 280 1700 3300 5 12 100 180 3000 3000 1997 1997 1998 2000 4,200 5,800 19,000 14,000 30,000? 30,000?
