Evidence for negative interference: clustering of crossovers close to the am locus in Neurospora crassa among am recombinants.

In response to a conflict between two mapping studies in the predicted orientation of the allele map with respect to the centromere, Fincham proposed that recombination events at the Neurospora am locus rarely have an associated crossover. Fincham considered that the elevated levels of crossing over between flanking markers in am recombinants resulted from… CONTINUE READING
