Once an organism’s genome has been sequenced, how do geneticists usually go about trying to pinpoint the locations of the genes?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The method used by geneticists to pinpoint the location of the genes in an organism’s genome.

Introduction: Genomics starts with the sequencing of an organism’s genome. Two strategies of genome sequencing are map-based sequencing (also known as the clone-by-clone method) and whole genome sequencing (also known as the shotgun method).

Explanation of Solution

Annotation is a phenomenon which is used to find the location of genes in an organism’s genome. In other words, the process of finding all the genes that encode proteins and RNA is known as annotation.

Genes leave a certain identifiable footprint which works as a clue for the geneticists...
