Glossary Term: Gene Locus

The specific location of a gene or DNA sequence on a chromosome. A variant of the similar DNA sequence at a given locus is called an allele. The ordered list of loci known for a particular genome is called a genetic map. Gene mapping is the procession of determining the locus for a particular biological trait.
