Nearly one in every 1000 children is affected hearing impairment in mouse and/or human, we mapped the cor- by hearing impairment at birth or before 2 years of age, that is, in responding genes on mouse and human chromosomes. Localiza- the prelingual period. Of these cases, approximately 65% are ge- tion on the mouse chromosomes was performed by fluorescence in netically determined, and the vast majority of these (80%) are situ hybridization
