Description:

Gene markers on chromosomes. By 1990, King had found a "landmark" that helped her fix the gene's position on a chromosome. This DNA marker was on chromosome 17, and was linked to breast cancer in a subset of the families she studied. She teamed up with Francis Collins in a race to find and clone the gene she named BRCA1.
