1. Recombination (genetic recombination)
The process by which offspring derive a combination of gene s different from that of either parent. In higher organisms, this can occur by crossing over .

2. Recombination frequency
The frequency at which crossing over occurs between two chromosomal loci --the probability that two loci will become unlinked during meiosis .

3. Recombination
A way in which meiosis produces new combinations of genetic information. During synapsis , chromatids may exchange parts with other chromatids, leading to a physical exchange of chromosome parts; thus, genes from both parents may be combined on the same chromosome, creating a new combination.
