Mind boogling crossing over question...

Post by B10Student » Wed Jun 11, 2008 2:55 am

I'm wondering why the chance of crossing over of two genes are maximized if the two genes are far apart on the same chromosome instead of being on different (homologous) chromosomes as in Metaphase I of Meiosis I.
