Linkage map

Type:Term

Definitions
1. an abstract mathematical representation of genetic loci that conserves order of loci, which are spaced in such a way that the distances are algebraically additive; conventionally, a map is scaled so that as distances between loci become smaller the ratio of the map distance to the value of the recombination fraction approaches 1 and independently assorting loci are infinitely far apart.
