Interference in Genetic Crossing over and Chromosome Mapping.

This paper proposes a general model for interference in genetic crossing over. The model assumes serial occurrence of chiasmata, visualized as a renewal process along the paired (or pairing) chromosomes. This process is described as an underlying Poisson process in which the 1st, n + 1th, 2n + 1th, etc., events are to be interpreted as realized chiasmata. Chromatid interference is described in terms of the probabilities that two successive chiasmata involve two, three or four different… CONTINUE READING
