chromolinkers: genome incomplete anyway

Well before Clinton's announcement of completion of a "draft" human 
genome, linkers between chromosomes, of about the same physical 
length (though not width), which we now call "chromolinkers", were 
discovered:

Maniotis, A. J.; Bojanowski, K., and Ingber, D. E. Mechanical 
continuity and reversible chromosome disassembly within intact 
genomes removed from living cells. J. Cell Biochem. 1997; 
65(1):114-130.

Maybe C. elegans has chromolinkers too? So we're far from done with 
that chapter of the story.
Yours, -Dick Gordon
