The first gene to be mapped to a specific chromosome in man indeed, in any mammal was that for color blindness, deduced to be on the X chromosome by E.B. Wilson at Columbia University in 1911. A few dozen other X-linked traits (e.g., hemophilia and Duchenne muscular dystrophy) were identified by characteristic pedigree pattern during the next 57 years before the first assignment of a gene to a specific human autosome: Duffy blood group to chromosome 1 by Donahue and colleagues (1968) at Johns… CONTINUE READING
