Radiation Hybrid

Science / Genetics / Radiation Hybrid: A hybrid cell containing small fragments of irradiated human chromosomes. Maps of irradiation sites on chromosomes for the human, rat, mouse, and other genomes provide important markers, allowing the construction of very precise sts maps indispensable to studying multifactorial diseases.
