Medical Definition of Genetic marker

1. A gene which has an easily identifiable phenotype so that one can tell apart cells or individuals which have the gene and those which do not have it. Such a gene can also be used as a probe to mark cell nuclei or chromosomes so that they can easily be isolated or identified from other nuclei or chromosomes later. (09 Oct 1997)
