  • a Because the progeny of these crosses are derived from selfing of the F1 generation the frequency of recombination (r) can be estimated from the number of wild-type recombinants: frequency of wild-type recombinants = r/2 + r/2 − r2/4. Since r is small this latter expression is approximately equal to r.
