Genome mapping is used to identify and record the location of genes and the distances between genes on a chromosome. Genome mapping provided a critical starting point for the Human Genome Project. Illustration showing crossing over of chromosomes during meiosis and how this affects the likelihood of genes being inherited together. Illustration showing a genetic map of the chromosomes from the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. The names of the genes are shown to the right of each chromosome.
How do you map a genome?
Metrics details. Progress in genetics and breeding in pea still suffers from the limited availability of molecular resources. SNP markers that can be identified through affordable sequencing processes, without the need for prior genome reduction or a reference genome to assemble sequencing data would allow the discovery and genetic mapping of thousands of molecular markers. Such an approach could significantly speed up genetic studies and marker assisted breeding for non-model species. A total of , SNPs were discovered using HiSeq whole genome sequencing of four pea lines, followed by direct identification of SNP markers without assembly using the discoSnp tool. Subsequent filtering led to the identification of , highly designable SNPs, polymorphic between at least two of the four pea lines.

Genetic Mapping and DNA Sequencing
The human genome is a complete set of nucleic acid sequences for humans , encoded as DNA within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria. These are usually treated separately as the nuclear genome, and the mitochondrial genome. Haploid human genomes, which are contained in germ cells the egg and sperm gamete cells created in the meiosis phase of sexual reproduction before fertilization creates a zygote consist of three billion DNA base pairs , while diploid genomes found in somatic cells have twice the DNA content. While there are significant differences among the genomes of human individuals on the order of 0. The first human genome sequences were published in nearly complete draft form in February by the Human Genome Project  and Celera Corporation.
Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome
Gene mapping describes the methods used to identify the locus of a gene and the distances between genes. The essence of all genome mapping is to place a collection of molecular markers onto their respective positions on the genome. Molecular markers come in all forms.
The success of the ongoing Human Genome Project has resulted in accelerated plans for completing the human genome sequence and the earlier-than-anticipated initiation of efforts to sequence the mouse genome. As a complement to these efforts, we are utilizing the available human sequence to refine human-mouse comparative maps and to assemble sequence-ready mouse physical maps. Here we describe how the first glimpses of genomic sequence from human chromosome 7 are directly facilitating these activities. Specifically, we are actively enhancing the available human-mouse comparative map by analyzing human chromosome 7 sequence for the presence of orthologs of mapped mouse genes.
