This unit provides concise overviews of the many physical mapping resources available and relates them to the genetic and transcript maps. Useful information on resolution of the maps, how to access them, and how to interpret them is compiled and presented in a clear fashion. Especially useful is a set of detailed protocols describing how to construct an STS marker and how to map it by means of available yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs). An additional protocol describes accessing EST marker maps.
