study of gene linkages tells about the location of the gene on the chromosomes and help in mapping of chromosomes which can then be used for analysis , prevention and even treatment of genetic diseases. three point linkage analysis gives more exact location of the gene and the mapping obtained is more precise than two point linkage.
