Linkage map

An abstract mathematical representation of genetic loci that conserves order of loci, which are spaced in such a way that the distances are algebraically additive; conventionally, a map is scaled so that as distances between loci become smaller the ratio of the map distance to the value of the recombination fraction approaches one and independently assorting loci are infinitely far apart.
