Rutgers Combined Linkage-Physical Map

We have constructed de novo a high-resolution genetic map that includes the largest set of polymorphic markers for which genotype data are publicly available: it combines genotype data from both the CEPH and deCODE pedigrees (for some markers), incorporates SNPs, also incorporates sequence-based positional information.

The position of most markers on our map is corroborated by both genomic sequence and recombination-based data. This specific combination of features maximizes marker inclusion, coverage, and resolution, making this map uniquely suited as a comprehensive resource for determining genetic map information (order and distances) for any large set of polymorphic markers.
