  • The paradigm of a 1:1 relationship between cytological chiasmata and genetic crossovers is widely accepted (see Jones, 1987, for review). Extensive literature on meiosis will not be reviewed here, but John (1990) provides a good review of its various aspects. It was Darlington (1932, 1934), who compared chiasma frequencies with genetic map lengths in maize, both for individual chromosomes and the whole genome, and found a good correlation between the two estimators of recombination. With the… CONTINUE READING
