Published in October 1992 in the journals Nature and Science, were the Human chromosome gene-linkage maps. David Page of the White-head Institute for Biomedical Research, Cam-bridge, MA, USA, prepared a Y-chromosome map. Daniel Cohen, director of the Centre for the Study of Human Polymorphism in Paris, France, prepared a map of chromosome 21, which was also published.

- Human genome – Wikipedia
The human genome is the complete set of nucleic acid sequence for humans (Homo sapiens), encoded as DNA within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria.
- Gene mapping – Wikipedia
Gene mapping describes the methods used to identify the locus of a gene and the distances between genes.
- Mapping and Sequencing the Human Genome
A primary goal of the Human Genome Project is to make a series of descriptive diagrams mapsof each human chromosome at increasingly finer resolutions.
