A review of independent and linked segregation in the rabbit

  • Roy Robinson


The published data on possible genetic linkage in the rabbit are surveyed and combined by the aid of maximum-likelihood scores to provide estimates of (i) closest linkage compatible with the apparent random segregation and (ii) the recombination fraction where random segregation is contradicted.
