Descriptor in English: Genetic Loci
Descriptor in Spanish: Sitios Genéticos
Descriptor in Portuguese: Loci Gênicos
Descriptor in French: Locus génétiques
Entry term(s): Genetic Locus
Loci, Genetic
Locus, Genetic
Tree number(s): G05.360.340.024.380
Scope note: Specific regions that are mapped within a GENOME. Genetic loci are usually identified with a shorthand notation that indicates the chromosome number and the position of a specific band along the P or Q arm of the chromosome where they are found. For example the locus 6p21 is found within band 21 of the P-arm of CHROMOSOME 6. Many well known genetic loci are also known by common names that are associated with a genetic function or HEREDITARY DISEASE.
Allowable Qualifiers: DE drug effects
GE genetics
IM immunology
