Optical mapping

This technology enables to create very detailed restriction maps.

dna strandsBriefly, long strands of genomic DNA are stretched on a glass slide where they're cut using a restriction enzyme and stained. A large number of these DNA strands are microscopically evaluated in an automated way, generating a very detailed, whole genome restriction map.
