Unformatted text preview: This was just the first time someone had seen this. Inheritance of two linked genes in pea plant The Effect of Recombination on Gene Linkage and Inheritance Researchers did numerous crosses of traits to identify gene linkage, and carefully noted percentages and ratios. However, some of the time, the results did show independent assortment of the "linked" genes, not enough to indicate the genes were indeed on separate chromosomes, but frequently enough to search for explanations. It was known that a phenomenon called crossing over occurred during meiosis. The effect of crossing over on sister chromatids provided an explanation for the "recombined" allele forms in gene linkage experiments....
