  • a Intervals with nonzero recombination in at least one sex.

  • b Likelihood ratio test of homogeneity of sex-specific recombination fractions across the individual linkage group (Ott 1999).

  • c Includes locus C7; assumed to cosegregate with locus C6 according to van Oorschot et al. (1993).

  • d Support increases to 3.6 if two loci (TP53 and MdoLR07) are removed.

  • e Autosomal linkage groups only.
