Using the techniques of Southern filter hybridization and somatic cell genetics, seven genomic DNA fragments recognizing DNA polymorphic loci were mapped to specific chromosomes and regions of chromosomes. The seven probes, isolated from human genomic libraries, lacked repetitive sequences and were hybridized to DNA isolated from a set of human-rodent somatic cell hybrids segregating human chromosomes. These probes detected DNA sequences on human chromosomes 3, 5, 9, 11, 17, 18, and 22. These DNA polymorphic sites, which occur in 10% or greater of the population, will serve as markers for linkage studies with known polymorphic loci as well as to establish linkage with disease loci.
