Are synapsis and independent assortment the same thing?
synapsis is the “complex” when two homologous chromosomes are crossing over and independent assortment occurs during metaphase I, so no they are not
what is independent assortment?
do we have to know how to calculate recombinant frequency?
Independent assortment states that homologous chromosomes will line up randomly at the metaphase plate.
synapsis is the process of the pairs coming together; independent assortment states that genes do not influence each other when sorting themselves into cells
no (thank god)
