Synapomorphy: type of homology used to estimate phylogeny. Homologous traits
shared by monoclad. One change on the phylogenetic tree.
Homoplasy: two changes on the phylogenetic tree.

No matter how far apart two genes may be, the maximum frequency of recombination between
any two genes is 50%
Percent recombination = map distance (
Pleitropy: one gene can affect more than one trait. Principle of segregation; In the formation of gametes, the paired genes separate in such a that each gamete is
equally likely to contain either member of the pair. Incomplete dominance: heterozygous geno

Interference= 1- (Obs. DCOs)/(Exp. DCOs) e.g. 1-(5/(.084x.077x1000)=.23 There is a 23% suppression of the frequency of DCOs due to
interference. That is, there are about 77% as many DCOs as expected if there was no int

Frequency of recombination as a measure of genetic distance.
Percent recombination = map distance (cM) when the distance are sufficiently short
Tutorial: QTL Mapping
Unlike simple Mendelian traits, which are controlled by one gene, an individuals phenotype for
complex traits is determined by the combined effects of multiple genes (sometimes referred to
as quantitative trait loci, or QTLs) as well
