Natural selection shapes variation in genome-wide recombination rate in Drosophila pseudoobscura

Kieran Samuk, Brenda Manzano-Winkler, Kathryn R. Ritz & Mohamed A.F. Noor
While recombination is widely recognized to be a key modulator of numerous evolutionary phenomena, we have a poor understanding of how recombination rate itself varies and evolves within a species. Here, we performed a comprehensive study of recombination rate (rate of meiotic crossing over) in two natural populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura from Utah and Arizona, USA. We used an amplicon sequencing approach to obtain high-quality genotypes in approximately 8000 individual backcrossed offspring (17 mapping populations...
