Admixture provides new insights into recombination

Nature Genetics volume 43, pages 819820 (2011) | Download Citation

Advances in both pedigree-based and population-based genetic maps in recent years have helped unravel some of the mysteries of human meiotic recombination. The publication of the first admixture-derived human genetic maps offers a new approach for inferring recombination events and provides insight into variation in recombination rate patterns across populations.
