27. If recombination frequency between two genes is 3 percent, what is the distance between the genes in map units on the linkage map: A: 0.75
28. The physical exchange of segments between homologous chromosomes is calledA: Crossing-overB: SynapsisC: Gene conversionD: Interference29. The maximum recombination frequency between two genes is:
30. A polymorphism is:
31. The CCR5-32 allele confers resistance to HIV because:a) of a 32 base pair deletion in the CCR5 co-receptorb) the allele has complex genetic interactions with reverse transcriptasec) CCR5-32 destroys infected macrophagesd) this allele produces a unique antibody capable of binding integrase
