A graphical representation of genetic and physical maps: the Marey map

Genomics. 1991 Sep;11(1):219-22. doi: 10.1016/0888-7543(91)90123-v.


A novel, simultaneous, visual representation of sex-specific genetic maps and physical maps is introduced. Such maps, called Marey maps, provide direct comparisons of multiple genetic maps and elucidate the relationship of recombination frequency to physical distance.
