We describe the use of pooled, region-specific hybridisation probes to screen high-density replica filters of a human genome YAC library. The probes were derived by microdissection of an approximately 30-Mbp region subtending the translocation breakpoint on a der(1)(1;11)(q42.1;q14.3) chromosome. Of 70 microdissection clones used in pools of 4-10, 47 identified a total of 77 YAC recombinants, representing over 50% of the microdissected region. This strategy can easily be adapted to other poorly mapped subchromosomal regions of the human or other mammalian genomes and will provide a solid framework for detailed contig map constructions.
