1. Informative meiosis
A lab technique used to determine whether two genetic marker s are linked to each other and how closely linked they are. It uses sexual reproduction which produces offspring in which the two markers may have crossed over during DNA recombination . (DNA recombination and crossing over occurs during meiosis to produce gamete s in each parent). Information on the proportion of progeny which have crossed over markers is used to determine whether the markers are linked, and if so how closely.
