Physical maps of the six smallest chromosomes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are presented. In order of increasing size, they are chromosomes I, VI, III, IX, V and VIII, comprising 2.49 megabase pairs of DNA. The maps are based on the analysis of an overlapping set of lambda and cosmid clones. Overlaps between adjacent clones were recognized by shared(More)
An approach to global restriction mapping is described that is applicable to any complex source DNA. By analyzing a single restriction digest for each member of a redundant set of lambda clones, a data base is constructed that contains fragment-size lists for all the clones. The clones are then grouped into subsets, each member of which is related to at(More)
A new method for preparing small quantities of lambda DNA from phage lysates has been developed. The protocol is based on the concentration and purification of bacteriophage particles from crude lysates using small DEAE-cellulose columns. This chromatographic step gives an absolute separation of the lambda DNA from the cellular nucleic acids and a 20-fold(More)
Methods for the construction of yeast artificial-chromosome (YAC) clones have been designed to isolate single, large (100-1000 kb) segments of chromosomal DNA. It is apparent from early experience with this cloning system that the major artifact in YAC clones involves the formation of YACs that contain two or more unrelated pieces of DNA. Such "chimeric"(More)
