Hello everyone,

For the project I'm working on, it is necessary to order genes 'uncovered'
by deletions done on a fruit fly's chromosome;  that is, if a 
piece of a chromosome is removed, genes 'a b c d e' are removed as well, 
and if an adjacent piece is removed, genes 'd e f g' are removed.  Examining a
number of these overlapping deletions will reveal the (sometimes) 
unambiguous ordering of the genes.  This is a non-trivial software task
(at least for me) so I wonder if there is free- or shareware software
that anyone knows about that will perform this sort of gene mapping
through deletion analysis.
