Table 1 Chromosome regions and locations of QTN and recombination hotspots

From: The potential of shifting recombination hotspots to increase genetic gain in livestock breeding

Number of chromosome regions Number of active regionsa Number of inactive regionsb Probability for recombination or QTN per region
250 25 225 0.04
500 50 450 0.02
1000 100 900 0.01
  1. aActive region—is a recombination hotspot and/or a QTN cluster
  2. bInactive region—is never a recombination hotspot or a QTN cluster
