Utilizing the CEPH (Centre d’Etude du Polymorphisme Humain) reference panel and genotyping data for 24 simple tandem repeat polymorphism (STRP) markers, we have constructed a 15-locus multipoint genetic framework map of human chromosome 22. The markers form a continuous linkage group of 51 cM in males and 81 cM in females. Likely genetic locations are provided for 9 additional STRP sequences. The map was constructed employing the CRIMAP computational methodology to build the multipoint map via a stepwise algorithm. The quality of the framework map was evaluated using a battery of statistical diagnostics that suggest a typing error frequency of 0.1% for markers within the map.
