Ph Gl3 45 66.0 - Ph Su 43 59.6 = Su Gl3 6.4
Ri Gl3 40 52.2 - RiSu 39 50.0 = Su Gl3 2.2
And with the same procedure Ri Su=29.8±1.7 and Ph Ri=11.7±2.0,
which leads to Su in position 41.5. Calculating p by the product
moment method we arrive at Ph--10.6--Ri--30.7--Su--4.2--Gl3
and Su1 would be in position 41.3 with Ph at the zero position.
The new value cM=4.2-4.3 for Su Gl3 strikingly brings out the proposed
interference of a heterozygous inversion; it would be Su Gl3 p=0.34
with cM=42.6 without interference. This fact could be used to quantify
inversion and translocation effects by developing a theoretical model.
The new rearrangement also would bring to closer position the teosinte
factors pd4 and tr4, which we proposed (MNL 61:32-34) to
be in positions 3 and 7 respectively considering Ts5 to be in 53
