Logo for PedigreeLab
Students use pedigree analysis to simulate the inheritance of genes for human genetic disorders, and use RFLP analysis to study recombination in humans. Combining RFLP analysis with pedigree analysis enables students to learn about, and understand, how the location of a gene can be assigned to a chromosome; and to pinpoint the location of a gene on a chromosome by using recombination data to generate a genetic map of that chromosome.
