WhatGenetic MapCreator is an application used to create an image of the mapping of a set of features onto a reference sequence such as a chromosome, scaffold, contig, or other sequence. The features mapped can be whatever is desired such as genes, SNPs, or markers.
A sample gene map created by Genetic MapCreator is shown on the right. Genetic MapCreator can create gene maps using either radiation hybrid data or linkage data.
HowGenetic MapCreator is written in Perl. Therefore, Genetic MapCreator will run on any hardware platform that supports Perl which includes pretty much everything.
