• Locus

    The physical site or location of a specific gene on a chromosome.

    A locus (plural loci) in genetics is the position on a chromosome. Each chromosome carries many genes; humans estimated haploid protein coding genes are 19,000-20,000, on the 23 different chromosomes. A variant of the similar DNA sequence located at a given locus is called an “allele”.
