Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Gene mapping assigns chromosomal coordinates to genetic loci based on analysis of fragmentary ordering and metric data. In assembling genetic maps, geneticists use rules of inference to derive new facts about order and distance between loci from experimentally derived conclusions about order and distance. They construct comprehensive maps by merging related sets of data and resolving conflicts between them. In this article we describe software that formalizes and automates some of these rules of inference to yield a useful map construction utility called CPROP.
