Construct a high-resolution physical map for specific regions
Measure the physical distance between two markers
Determine the order of markers along chromosomes with centromere-telomere orientation
Determine the number of gene duplications/deletions in disease conditions
Analyze the gene amplification array
Map the translocation point
Confirm mapping data generated from a radiation hybrids panel
Determine the physical relationship between an identified novel gene and other genetic markers
A. High resolution FISH mapping on released free chromatin. The
resolution of chromatin fiber mapping is approximately 20 Kb, while
the coverage is 20Kb -- 5,000Kb. B. High resolution FISH mapping on released DNA fiber. The resolution
of DNA fiber mapping is 1-2 Kb. The figure illustrates three probes (
a, b and c) simultaneously within 50 kb region.
Comparison of different resolutions between interphase FISH and fiber
FISH. In the interphase nucleus (IN), the 3,000Kb region appears as a
large spot, Chromatin fiber (CF) displays the same region
as three separate domains.
