Abstract:

If the number of cross-overs occurring between two loci is a Poisson random variable with mean gamma rays then the probability of an odd number of cross-overs is p 1-e to the minus 2 gamma power2. Cross-over units measured on the scale of gamma rays - log1-2p2 rather than on the p-scale would therefore be additive. Author
