Unformatted text preview: For example: Human: 1.3 cM/Mbp Yeast: 360 cM/Mbp Sometimes recombination rates in the male and female of a species are different. In Drosophila there is no recombination in the male so the genetic distance between markers on the same chromosome are always zero when examined by meiosis in the male. In humans the recombination rate (and therefore map distances) in the female are twice that of the male....
