Unformatted text preview: behave like a single allele of a gene evolutionarily, even if they contain several genes. Co- adapted pairs of alleles at different loci remain together inside inversions. Whatever is stuck inside the inversion will never experience recombination two alleles that work together well, but with inversions they will remain coupled to one another. Recombination: Medium So what? Generates new combinations of alleles at different loci (new haplotypes). ON the plus side, it can make good pairs of alleles at two loci; on the downside, it can also break up good pairs. Does not generate new alleles, per se. The combination did not exist in either of the two parents. Responsible for tandem duplications...
