(1999) Genome maps 10. Comparative genomics. Mammalian radiations. Wall chart. Science (New York, N.Y.). 286:463-478.
Dense genetic maps of human, mouse, and rat genomes that are based on
coding genes and on microsatellite and single-nucleotide polymorphism
markers have been complemented by precise gene homolog alignment
with moderate-resolution maps of livestock, companion animals, and
additional mammal species. Comparative genetic assessment expands the
utility of these maps in gene discovery, in functional genomics, and in
tracking the evolutionary forces that sculpted the genome organization of
modern mammalian species.
