Recombination Analysis

Abstract

If the recombination frequency is a measure of distance between two genes, it should be possible to carry out a systematic series of crosses that will give you the recombination frequencies for pairwise combinations of a collection of different genes. From these, you should be able to construct a map of the relative positions of the genes on the chromosome. This proves to be perfectly feasible, but there are a few points we need to make before illustrating the operation.
