Title: The characterisation of human X-linked polymorphic markers and their use in disease gene localisation and identification / Andrew James Donnelly.
Author: Donnelly, Andrew James
Issue Date: 1997
School/Discipline: Dept. of Genetics
Abstract: The aim of the project presented in this thesis is to isolate microsatellite markers and to construct a high resolution genetic map of the human X chromosome using these and pre-existing microsatellite markers. AC dinucleotide repeat markers are isolated from a bacteriophage library for application to the genetic localisations of X-linked disease genes, particularly those responsible for non-specific mental retardation (MRX). The genetic map is used to refine the location of the disease gene segregating in five families affected with X-linked mental retardation.
