When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get one, but you won’t come up with a handful of mud, either. ––Leo Burnett

The total genetic composition of an organism is its genome. Genomics is the molecular analysis of the entire genome of a species. Structural Genomics

The first complete sequence of a genome was obtained in 1995 by Venter and Smith. The genome of the bacterium Hemophilus influenzae is composed of a single circular chromosome 1.83 million base pairs (bp) in length containing approximately 1,743 genes. Structural Genomics
Image of page 4
The first complete eukaryotic genome that was sequenced was Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It contains 16 linear chromosomes with a combined length of about 12.1 million bp and approximately 6,300 genes. Functional genomics studies the interaction of the components of the genome to produce the traits of the organism. Proteomics studies the interactions of all cellular proteins to produce the characteristics of particular cell types and the traits of complete organisms. Structural Genomics

Mapping refers to the experimental process of determining the relative locations of genes or other segments of DNA along individual chromosomes. There are three ways to determine the organization of DNA regions. Cytogenetic mapping (cytological mapping) relies on the localization of gene sequences within chromosomes that are viewed using a microscope. Linkage mapping (genetic mapping) uses the frequency of recombination between different genes to determine their relative spacing and order along a chromosome. Physical mapping uses DNA cloning techniques to determine the location of and distance between genes and other DNA regions in nucleotide base pairs. Cytogenetic and Linkage Mapping

A genetic map is a chart that describes the relative locations of genes and other DNA segments along a chromosome. The term locus (pl., loci) refers to the site within a genetic map where a specific gene or other DNA segment is found. Cytogenetic and Linkage Mapping

This figure compares genetic maps produced by the three mapping methods showing the loci for two X-linked genes in Drosophila melanogaster . Cytogenetic and Linkage Mapping
Image of page 8
A goal of cytogenetic mapping is to determine the location of genes along an intact chromosome. Eukaryotic chromosomes may be distinguished by their size, centromeric location, and banding patterns. Cytogenetic Mapping

By treating chromosomal preparations with particular dyes, a discrete banding pattern is obtained for each chromosome. The banding pattern can be used to describe specific regions along a chromosome. Cytogenetic Mapping
Image of page 10
Cytogenetic mapping attempts to locate particular genes relative to the banding pattern of a chromosome. For example, the human gene that is defective in people with cystic fibrosis, the gene that encodes the transmembrane regulator (CFTR), is located on chromosome 7 at a specific site in the q 3 region.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
