Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

The map distance tells you how closely linked the genes are. The shorter the map distance, the higher the probability of co-inheritance and the more tightly linked the genes are ("tightly linked" and "close map distance" are pretty much synonymous). "the closer ...

Re: Muscular dystrophy inheritance question

Right - this is autosomal, therefore it is not Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and is not a mutation of the dystrophin gene. Thanks, I had missed that. The upper sequences look identical, while the lower sequences show two different sequences for the female (due to the N position, which shows two ...
