"A genetic or linkage map is like a road map of an organism's chromosome using molecular markers. These maps indicate the position and genetic distance between the markers in
the different chromosomes"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
