A linkage map is a genetic map known to show recombination frequencies of genes. The shorter the distance from other genes of interest, the greater the possibility of recombination, to a max value of 50%.
Which of the following statements is true regarding linkage mapping?
A. Linkage mapping can be used to determine the exact distance between genes found on the same chromosome.
B. Linkage mapping can be used to determine the relative distance between genes found on the same chromosome.
C. Linkage mapping is a method used to determine when a recombination event is likely to occur on a particular chromosome.
D. In a linkage map, the distance between genes is measured in base pairs.
