Genome Mapping and Genotyping

Gene mapping (genome mapping) is assigning DNA fragments to plant chromosomes, creating a genetic or physical map for an organism. Genotyping is identifying inherited alleles, differences in genetic make-up (genotype) between plants, and using DNA sequences to define biological populations. Both gene mapping and genotyping utilize extraction of DNA targets from plant matter (leaves, stalks or stems) and amplification by PCR (polymerase chain reaction). Validated molecular biology protocols describe how to rapidly extract and amplify the DNA strand (template or target), using PCR then electrophoresis on agarose gels with inert tracking dyes for analysis. New methods of high-throughput DNA purification and PCR amplification eliminate the need for freezing, extraction, or precipitation when conducting genetic analysis of plants. Genetic maps enable scientists to identify young plants with desirable genotypes and phenotypes, for further study by other molecular biology and biotechnology methods.
