Centimorgans


In genetics, a centimorgan or map unit (m.u.) is a unit of recombinant frequency for measuring genetic linkage. It is often used to imply distance along a chromosome. The number of base-pairs it corresponds to varies widely across the genome . One centimorgan corresponds to about 1 million base pairs in humans on average . The centimorgan is equal to a 1%...
