Unformatted text preview: mosomes Since the breakage-reunion events (crossovers ) between two loci on non-sister chromatids are independent events, it follows that the probability (p) of a crossover occurring will be related to the distance between the two loci. As shown below, there are more potential crossovers sites between loci B and C than between A and B. Therefore a map based on recombination frequency (RF) should be wider (i.e., more map units -- m.u.) between loci B and C than A and B. A a B b C c An odd number of crossovers is needed to recombine loci

Rodriguez 2012 21 Double Crossovers involving 3 loci In the example below, a trihybrid cross is performed involving three loci; vestigial (v), cut (ct) and crossveinless (cv). A double crossover occurs between v and cv. Note that only the middle (ct) of the 3 loci switches...
