The position on a chromosome occupied by a particular gene (plural: loci).
Latin a place (cf. location, locate, dislocate).
position of a gene in the genome. The locus of a gene is designated by the chromosome number, its arm, and its place. For example, the Duchenne muscular dystrophy gene is at locus Xp21, meaning it is at locus 21 of the short arm (p) of the X chromosome.
The position on a chromosome where a particular genetic trait resides. Sometimes used to describe multiple genes that affect the same function.
a particular place along the length of a certain chromosome where a given gene is located

(pl: loci) A site on a chromosome.
The position in a chromosome of a particular gene or allele.
Any given genome region
A locus is a unique location on the DNA strand; a way of specifying a base or section of the genome. For example, a gene, which is a section of DNA encoding information for a particular function, can be called a locus. A locus can also refer to a section of DNA which does not have a known function.
A general term for a region (or "location") along a length of DNA or chromosome where a genetic unit is found; the term can refer to something as simple as a single base or as complex as an entire gene.
A specific location on a chromosome (loci, plural)
The specific position of a gene or other chromosomal marker.
A point in the genome, identified by a marker, which can be mapped by some means. It does not necessarily correspond to a gene. A single gene may have several loci within it (each defined by different markers) and these markers may be separated in genetic or physical mapping experiments. In such cases, it is useful to define these different loci, but normally the gene name should be used to designate the gene itself, as this usually will convey the most information.
the portion of a chromosome responsible for the production of a polypeptide chain (a sequence of amino acids that may act alone (or in combination) as a functional protein).
(LO·cus), plural loci (LO·ci pronounced LO·see). A three-dimensional space, which in archaeology is the fundamental unit in the recording system, generally determined by the boundaries of any discernible soil layer or "thing" (wall, pit, hearth) within or related to a given soil layer.

Any three-dimensional feature in a square, such as a layer of earth, as wall, pit, bin, and the like.
The position of a gene on a genetic map. Allelic gene are situated at identical loci in homologous chromosomes.
An individual site on the bacterial chromosome where genetic activity can be located.
Position on a chromosome where a gene lies - plural LOCI.
The domain represents the cause in the description of some durational process; the locus represents the effect - thus, the locus is the stretch of speech within which durational variation is manifest. It is hypothesised in the dissertation that the loci of domain-edge and domain-span processes are phonologically defined. Thus, for example, the locus of word-initial lengthening appears to be the word-initial syllable onset (for example: Oller 1973; Turk & Shattuck-Hufnagel 2000); the locus of phrase-final (or utterance-final lengthening) appears to be the word-rhyme, beginning with a primary-stressed syllable nucleus and extending to a word boundary (see dissertation Chapter 4).

a site for a specific gene on a chromosome.
Position at which a gene is located on a chromosome.
The spot or position on a chromosome where an allele is located.
Position on homologous chromosomes occupied by those genes which determine the state of a particular phenotypic characteristic.
The site on a chromosome where a gene is found; often used more or less synonymously with gene (cf. polymorphic locus, allozymes).
A specific location on a DNA molecule. Also called a genetic marker. The plural is "loci".
Each gene has a unique position or locus on a DNA molecule.
A specific location on a chromosome; also, the actual nucleotide sequence at that location.
A site on a segment of DNA.
See Genetic Locus.
A zero-dimensional geometric entity (point), represented on exactly one editable slice in a Compound Shape. Loci can be examined, defined, and moved using Shape Editors.
The location of a gene on the chromosome.
Refers to the specific physical position in a chromosome where a gene or gene pair may be located.
The position on a chromosome of a gene or other chromosome marker; also, the DNA at that position. The use of locus is sometimes restricted to mean regions of DNA that are expressed.
The position or location on a chromosome of a particular gene or marker.
A specific place on a chromosome where a gene is located.
A position in the DNA sequence, relative to others. This can describe a specific polymorphic site or a large region of DNA sequence in which one or more genes might be located.
The position on a chromosome of a gene or other chromosome marker; also, the DNA at that position. The use of locus is sometimes restricted to mean expressed DNA regions. Source : Human Genome Project Information
A specific "slot" on a chromosome which corresponds to a certain location, kind of like an address to a certain house. Different genes in the same locus can control one or more traits. A locus is generally referred to as the gene "for" a certain trait.
The specific position occupied by a gene on a chromosome. At a given locus, any one of the variant forms of a gene may be present. The variants are said to be alleles of that gene.

A locus indicates the position of a gene on a chromosome.

(n) A graphic element representing all possible allowable locations of a point. The locus of points may be drawn as a line, circle, or arc. For example, a circle is a locus of all points at a distance from the center, equal to the radius of the circle. Loci are used extensively in geometric constructions as a tool for finding the centers of tangent arcs, the endpoints of lines, etc.
In genetics, a specific location on a chromosome. May be considered to be synonymous with "gene."
Site on a chromosome occupied by a particular gene.
In genetics, the specific site of a gene on a chromosome. All the alleles of a particular gene occupy the same locus.
Position a gene occupies on a chromosome
In mathematics, a locus (Latin for "place", plural loci) is a collection of points which share a property. The term 'locus' is usually used of a condition which defines a continuous figure or figures, that is, a curve. For example, a line is the locus of points equidistant from two fixed points.
In biology and evolutionary computation, a locus is a fixed position on a chromosome, such as the position of a gene. A variant of the DNA sequence at a given locus is called an allele. The ordered list of loci known for a particular genome is called a genetic map.
