Recombination frequency is a measure of genetic linkage. It's the frequency of a single chromosomal crossover (sometimes called crossing over - two parts of genetic material on homologous chromosomes swap places during meiosis – literally „cross over“ to the other homologous chromosome; the resulting chromosomes are called recombinant chromosomes). A cM – centiMorgan (in honour of geneticist Thomas Hunt Morgan) – is a unit that describes a recombination frequency of 1%. Its parent unit, the Morgan, is rarely used (1 Morgan = 100 cM). For instance...
