Deletion Mapping

Science / Genetics / Deletion Mapping: The use of overlapping deletions to localize the position of an unknown gene on a chromosome or linkage map.

Long-Range Restriction Mapping

Science / Genetics / Long-Range Restriction Mapping: Restriction enzymes are proteins that cut dna at precise locations. Restriction maps depict the chromosomal positions of restriction-enzyme cutting sites. These are used as biochemical 'signposts,' or MORE

Mapping Population

Science / Genetics / Mapping Population: The group of related organisms used in constructing a genetic map. MORE

Texture Mapping

Entertainment / Video Games / Texture Mapping: The programming technique that draws graphical patterns on polygons. This allows smooth surfaces to look bumpy or shaded. MORE

Knowledge Mapping

Business / Human Resources (HR) / Knowledge Mapping: A process used to create a summation of the knowledge an organization will need in order to support its overall goals, objectives, strategies and missions. MORE

Gene Mapping

Science / Genetics / Gene Mapping: Determination of the relative positions of genes on a dna molecule (chromosome or plasmid) and of the distance, in linkage units or physical units, between them. MORE


Science / Biology / Deletion: The loss of a chromosome segment without altering the number of chromosomes. MORE
