Unformatted text preview: ination, is about 4400 cM. With an average of 3 kb/cM, genetic distance is roughly proportional to physical distance (Fig. A.4). Exceptions are the rDNA repeats, in which there is virtually no meiotic recombination, and the regions surrounding the centromeres, where recombination is modestly suppressed. Because S. cerevisiae has an unusually active recombination system, the total genetic map of yeast is extraordinarily long compared to the genetic map of other fungal organisms. Neurospora crassa, for example, has about the same DNA content as yeast but a genetic map that is only 15% as long as yeast’s.
