Glossary Term: Genetic Map

(Synonymous with Gene Map or Genetic Linkage)

The tendency of genes that are located proximal to each other on a chromosome to be inherited together during meiosis. Genes whose loci are nearer to each other are less likely to be separated onto different chromatids during chromosomal crossover, and are therefore said to be genetically linked.
