The Kosambi mapfunction (Kosambi, 1944) was used to convert recombination frequency to genetic map distance in centi Morgan (cM).
Thirty-four plus percent recombination or 34 map units is a much better estimate of the true recombination frequency between sepia and ebony but is still less than the official map distance probably because of the underestimation of the recombination frequency due to the inability to detect double crossovers, as well as other factors.
Marker order and map distance in the Satt220-Satt536 interval were accurately determined using 92 recombinants (two plants derived from both recombinant gametes, and the rest from one recombinant gamete and one parental gamete) identified from 1911 B[C.
An error of over 11% for shapes that represent T-junctions in road maps constitutes a considerable overestimation of the relevant map distance.
To examine the relationship between genetic diversification of populations and their geographic relationships, a measure of genetic differentiation can be regressed against map distance between populations.
