Integration of molecular and cytegenetic levels of investigation results in complex understanding of structural and functional genome organization. Gridded libraries of large-insert genomic clones represent a powerful tool of the genome analysis. Their utilization provides coordination of data on molecular organization of nucleic acids with cytogenetic data on the chromosome structure. These libraries played an important role in sequencing of genomes of human, mouse, and other organisms as an instrument linking molecular biological and cytogenetic data via construction of contigs and their localization on the chromosomes. They also enabled analysis of orthology between the mammalian genomes. The existing avian libraries fit molecular cytogenetic analysis of the class Aves genome, and can be successfully used for the isolation and characterization of large genomic fragments. This provides utilization of these libraries not only for the chromosome mapping, but also for positional cloning and search for candidate genes for quantitative traits.
