Genetic Linkage Map

Bookmark and Share

Genetic linkage map, also known as genetic map, is a linear graph of the sequence and relative distance of molecular markers on chromosome based on the frequencies of recombination between markers during crossover of homologous chromosomes. The construction of high-density genetic map based on high-throughput sequencing technology has gradually become a revolutionary technology favored by researchers. It can rapidly develop a large number of molecular markers at one time, and obtain ultra-high-density genetic map. It provides accurate and complete QTLs number and locus information that co-segregate with the phenotype.

To address the emerging needs of research communities, CD Genomics has developed an affordable, reliable genetic linkage map service based on high-throughput sequencing to get dense markers and give researchers a high-quality genetic linkage map, as well as professional data analysis.
