Genetic Recombination

Crossing Over and Recombination

No items found.

Learn about the early stages of meiosis, including the key terms, differentiating between homologous chromosomes and sister chromatids, and the effects of chromosomal crossing over on genetic recombination. Explore the relationship between proximity on a chromosome and recombination.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe when and how crossing over occurs during meiosis
  • Explore the relationship between proximity on a chromosome and recombination

Concepts Principles and Theories

  • What is meant by crossing over, genetic recombination, homologous chromosomes and sister chromatids
  • What is happening on a molecular level during Meiosis I and II
  • How does genetic recombination affect the variation through inheritance
  • How the distance between genetic loci impacts the recombination and co-inheritance frequency
