Homozygosity mapping is a powerful procedure that is capable of detecting recessive disease-causing genes in a few patients from families with a history of inbreeding. We report here a homozygosity mapping algorithm for high-density single nucleotide polymorphism arrays that is able to (i) correct genotyping errors, (ii) search for autozygous segments(More)
We established a Thermus thermophilus strain in which the pyrE gene (coding for orotate phosphoribosyltransferase of the pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway) was totally deleted. We also constructed an integration vector, which consisted of the Escherichia coli plasmid vector pBluescript and a 2.1-kb segment of the T. thermophilus leu operon sequence, for the(More)
