Hence, an estimation of the recombination frequency can be made by deducting one half of the total F2 progeny number from the wild-type category and then treating the rest of the data as testcross data.

The discussion above of the effect of selecting progeny with high numbers of recombinants differs somewhat from the discussion given in Darvasi and Soller (1995), in that they decreased marker spacing with increases in recombination frequency due to additional rounds of random mating.
The size difference for this genetic interval is primarily due to a difference in recombination frequency between Xfcc1 and Xfcg10, which is 2.

Unless otherwise specified, all results presented below were parameterized with the recombination frequency between the loci r = 0.
The maximum likelihood estimator for recombination frequency is the value of p that would satisfy the equation below.
The simulations considered changes in the recombination frequency between a target gene and flanking markers, one to five target genes, different screened population sizes, and the selection of one or two individuals at each selection generation.

less than 10 cM, most mapping functions have the same behavior in terms of conversion between recombination frequency and genetic distance; however, when genetic length increases, mapping functions show strong divergences.
Taking into account only the recovered recombinant chromosomes, the overall recombination frequency of the 1RS arm in the analyzed population was 0.
