A map of 30,181 human gene-based markers was assembled and integrated with the current genetic map by radiation hybrid mapping. The gene map contains nearly twice as many genes as the previous release, includes most genes that encode proteins of known function, and is twofold to threefold more accurate than the previous version. A redesigned, more informative and functional World Wide Web site (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genemap) provides the mapping information and associated data and annotations. This resource constitutes an important infrastructure and tool for the study of complex genetic traits, the positional cloning of disease genes, the cross- referencing of mammalian genomes, and validated human transcribed sequences for large-scale studies of gene expression.
