Chromosomal assignment of 2900 Tri- and tetranucleotide repeat markers using NIGMS somatic cell hybrid panel 2. Genomics. 1996 Feb 15;32(1):15-20.
Two thousand nine hundred and thirty-one tri- and tetranucleotide short tandem repeat polymorphisms (STRPs) developed by the Cooperative Human Linkage Center were assigned to chromosomes using the NIGMS somatic cell hybrid mapping panel 2 and an efficient pooling strategy. Approximately 82% of all STRPs tested were assigned by this method, with 96.7% accuracy, Many of the single chromosome cell lines contained portions of additional chromosomes, confirming previous reports. The cell lines for chromosomes 6, 14, and 20 contained extensive portions of other chromosomes. Five previously unreported chromosomal contaminants were identified and are reported. A new pooling strategy was designed to minimize ambiguous assignments. (C) 1996 Academic Press, Inc.

A Collection of Trinucleotide and Tetranucleotide Repeat Markers Used to Generate High-Quality, High-Resolution Human Genome-Wide Linkage Maps. Human molecular genetics. 1995 Oct;4(10):1837-44.
We report a collection of tri- and tetranucleotide repeat sequence polymorphic markers used to construct genome-wide human linkage maps. Using a strategy of marker selection to create libraries highly enriched for the presence of specific tandem repeat elements, we have developed over 2000 high heterozygosity, easy-to-use tri- and tetranucleotide short tandem repeat polymorphisms (STRPs). To date, over 1300 of these markers have been genotyped on the CEPH reference families. Additional STRPs were assigned to chromosomes using human monochromosomal somatic cell hybrids. The linkage maps constructed with these markers have been integrated with other CEPH genotypes into a comprehensive high density linkage map. These STRPs have been shown to be robust for genotyping in a variety of laboratories using a variety of methods. The high quality of these STRPs makes them ideal candidates for use in genome-wide linkage searches. The integration of these markers with physical mapping reagents and other genetic markers will create a resource for moving from genome-wide linkage searches to rapid sublocalization of disease loci.
