Reference Hunt GJ, Page RE Jr. Linkage map of the honey bee, Apis mellifera, based on RAPD markers. Genetics. 1995 Mar139(3):1371-82 p.1380 left column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID7768445
Method Given a physical genome size of 178,000 kilobases (using the data of Jordan et al., 1974, PMID 4436593 and assuming 1 bp = 642 D ) and a recombinational size of 3450 cM for the honey bee, the relationship between these two measures is an average of 52 kb/cM.
