Mapping a chromosome segment

  1. Jun 14, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A group of overlapping clones, designated A through F, is isolated from one region of a chromosome. Each of the clones is seperately cleaved by a restriction enzyme and the pieces resolved by agarose gel electrophoresis, with the results shown in the figure below. There are nine different restriction fragments in this chromosomal region, with a subset appearing in each clone. Using tjis information, deduce the order of the restriction fragments in the chromosome.

    Code (Text):

      A    B   C   D    E    F
    1 -        -        -  
    2      -        -        -
    3 -    -   -   -      
    4      -    -   -        -
    5 -        -    -   -  
    6      -                  -
    7 -    -   -   -         -
    8      -            
    9 -                 -


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not sure how I go about solving this.
