How are genetic maps used in the sequencing of whole genomes?

Option: 1

They provide a starting point for the sequencing process

Option: 2

They are used to determine the function of specific genes 

Option: 3

They allow researchers to determine the exact location of mutations


Option: 4

 They help to predict the phenotypic effects of genetic variants

Answers (1)


 Genetic maps provide a starting point for the sequencing of whole genomes by identifying the locations of genes on the chromosomes. This allows researchers to sequence specific regions of DNA and determine the order of genes along the chromosome.
