maternal age, and interaction effects mediate rates of crossing over in Drosophila melanogaster females. evidence that infection alters global recombination rate in house mice. PLOS ONE 10(11): e0142266.
Meiotic recombination is a genetic process that is critical for proper chromosome segregation in many organisms. Despite being fundamental for organismal fitness, rates of crossing over vary greatly between taxa. Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to phenotypic variation in crossover frequency, as do genotype-environment interactions. Here,… (More)
