Number of bases); the two distances are related in a nonlinear and highly variable manner, although marker order is the same. The relationship between the physical and genetic maps varies with position in the genome, but averages in human and mouse around 1 centimorgan per 1 to 2 megabases. Since a centimorgan 24 Karen P. 2 The plan for an informative cross in the mouse, using the autosomal recessive mutation whirfer (wi) as an example. Only the relevant chromosome is shown. Solid lines represent chromosomes originally from the whirler stock, and dashed lines represent a different stock carrying the wild type copy of the whirfer gene ( + ) and chosen to maximise the genetic difference between it and the whirfer parental stock.
