MAP-MAKER: MIT biologist Eric Lander and his coworkers developed a comprehensive map of the mouse genome.
Comments by Eric Lander, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and William Dietrich, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Harvard Medical School

The paper reports a comprehensive genetic map of the mouse genome and, specifically, how genetic markers are arranged along the mouse genome. "Genetic maps are essential tools for doing any kind of genetic work," says Eric Lander, a professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and...
