Close look at gene conversion hot spots

  title={Close look at gene conversion hot spots},
  author={Jeffrey D. Wall},
  journal={Nature Genetics},
New work has directly estimated male gene conversion rates in three regions of the human genome and identified gene conversion hot spots in the same locations as previously identified crossover hot spots. This work elucidates the fine-scale structure of linkage disequilibrium (LD) in the human genome and will be useful in association studies and other LD-based applications in population and human genetics.
