One centimorgan corresponds to a Genetics, genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics recombination frequency of 1% between two polymorphic markers and corresponds to approximately 1 Mb of DNA. Physical maps indicate the position of a locus or gene in absolute values. Sequence-tagged sites (STSs), any site in a chromosome or genome that is identified by a known unique DNA sequence, are used for physical mapping and, after cloning of DNA fragments, they serve as landmarks for arranging overlapping cloned DNA fragments in the same order as they occur in the genome.

The intensity of the emitted signal on each spot permits calculation of the ratios of each RNA that binds to the respective probe. can be detected easily (see Plate 1, facing p. 148). This allows staining of specific DNA segments in situ on a metaphase chromosome spread or within a cell nucleus. FISH is widely used for diagnostic cytogenetic analyses and in the mapping of genes. FISH probes can consist of a single contiguous genomic sequence or a mixture of two or multiple probes. g. a chromosome arm, or whole chromosomes.
