The techniques that have been described for gene mapping have proven to be invaluable aids to the cytogeneticist. They are not, however, without limitations. In situ hybridization is potentially the most powerful technique available for gene mapping and has already proven useful for these studies. By a combination of the isolation of pure protein specific mRNA and the synthesis of high specific activity radioactive cDNA to it, this procedure should rapidly increase knowledge of gene locations, linkages, and possibly even heretofore undetectable minor deletions.
