MAP-MAKER: MIT biologist Eric Lander and his coworkers developed a comprehensive map of the mouse genome.
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...
