There is a great deal of effort to locate and characterize genes which
are related to specific functions or diseases. To support this process,
mapping of chromosomes appears to be making rapid progress. What,
however, is known about chromosome organization? It would seem logical
that genes with related functions share a single chromosome. Is there,
in fact, any information so far that confirms this assumption? If so,
any leads to which are the best studied chromosomes and who is working
most actively in this area. hirshaut at yu1.yu.edu. Thanks.
