  • Four alleles can be clearly identified at each of the two linked loci (scenario 1 in Table 1). A1, B1, C1, and D1 are the four alleles at locus 1. A2, B2, C2, and D2 are the four alleles at locus 2. Recombination frequencies in the female and male parents are denoted as rF and rM, respectively. The last column gives the symbol of observed sample size of each genotype
