Enter the total number of recombinants and the total offspring into the calculator to determine the recombination frequency.

## Recombination Frequency Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a recombination frequency.

RF = RCO / TO *100

- Where RF is the recombination frequency
- RCO is the total number of recombinants
- TO is the total offspring.

To calculate the recombination frequency, divide the number of recombinants by the total offspring.

## Recombination Frequency Definition

A recombination frequency is defined as the ratio of recombinant offspring between two organisms.

## Recombination Frequency Example
