Chapter 5 Linkage and Mapping in Eukaryotes BIOL203- Lecture 12 IMPORTANT POINTS: -genes close to one another on the chromosome do not assort independently: they are linked -this means they often segregate together in meiosis -linked genes can be separated by recombination in meiosis: they will then segregate away from each other -this is a rare event -the further away two genes are from each other, the higher the frequency of recombination -if detected by phenotypic analysis: recombination is a measure of distance between two genes

Unlinked genes Figure 5.1 Two unlinked genes (or markers, or mutations): assort independently and randomly: 25% of each genotype, 50% parental, 50% non-parental

Genetic linkage: on same chromosome arm Figure 5.1 Two linked genes (or markers, or mutations): Segregate together unless they are separated by recombination The parental genotypes (non-recombinants) far exceed the non-parental genotypes HALLMARK OF LINKAGE: SIGNIFICANT PROPORTION OF PARENTAL GENOTYPES OVER 50%

The degree of linkage varies and depends on distance Figure 5.2 The proportion (%) of recombinant types (non-parental) depends on the physical distance between the genes on the chromosome
