USER-FRIENDLY: Maps of human genetic markers integrate the work of many labs, according to Fox Chase's Kenneth Buetow.

These maps-based on inheritance patterns of linked genes-have been generated by a number of groups participating in the worldwide Human Genome Project, including the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR) in Bethesda, Md., and the Centre d'Etude Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH) in Paris.
