The set of hereditary material transmitted from parents to offspring is known as the genome, and consists of molecules of DNA arranged in the chromosomes. The DNA itself is characterized by its nucleotid sequence. DNA sequences therefore have lengths measured in base pairs. A physical map is an ordering of features of interest along the chromosome in which the metric is the number of base pairs between features. However, we are concerned with genetic mapping where the metric itself is under genetic control.
