Development of DNA sequencing by Walter Gilbert and Frederick Sanger allowed the mapping of the sickle cell gene. DNA is made up of four different bases (these are the letters of the DNA alphabet A, T, C and G) and the genes coded in the DNA are identified (or read) by determining the order of these bases. The technique developed by Sanger and colleges allowed this ordered mapping of the bases using which the gene responsible for Sickle cell was mapped.
