R. W. Allard and W. M. Clement determined recombination rates for a series of genes in lima beans (R. W.Allard and W. M. Clement. 1959. Journal of Heredity 50:63–67). The following table lists paired recombinationrates for eight of the loci (D, Wl, R, S, L1, Ms, C, and G) that they mapped. On the basis of these data, draw aseries of genetic maps for the different linkage groups of the genes, indicating the distances between the genes.Keep in mind that these rates are estimates of the true recombination rates and that some error is associated witheach estimate.Recombination Rates (%) among Seven Loci in Lima BeansWl R S L1 Ms C GD 2.1 39.3 52.4 48.1 53.1 51.4 49.8Wl 38 47.3 47.7 48.8 50.3 50.4R 51.9 52.7 54.6 49.3 52.6S 26.9 54.9 52.0 48.0L1 48.2 45.3 50.4Ms 14.7 43.1C 52.0Significantly different than 50% is any percentage
