Estimating the Chiasma Frequency in Diplotene-Diakinesis Stage

Introduction Chiasma is the point of crossing over or site where the exchange of genetic material takes place between two homologous, non-sister chromatids. The crossover occurs in the pachytene stage, however, it is observed in the diplotene stage of meiosis-I. The cross over between the two homologs also creates a new combination of parental genes, forming recombinants. The recombination of
