physical location of gene

Post by pushi » Fri Oct 07, 2011 8:23 pm

can physical location of gene on any particular chromosome (except near centromearic region) changes over time due to crossing over????

if the cross-over was not equal (not on the same place on both chromatids), then yes

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
