  • The recombination rates were calculated using two approaches. In the G-test method, one recombination event was counted if a G-statistic was significant for a given time interval. In the residual method, one recombination event was counted if at least one residual value within a time interval was < −2 or >2. Gen, total number of generations for each line.
