However, although the cat chromosomes look extremely conserved in a macroevolutionary context, they appeared to be the champions among the studied mammalian species in the frequency of genetic recombination , the redistribution of genes through the exchange of chromosomal regions between chromosome pairs. As is known, recombination is the main supplier of new gene combinations, which feed for natural selection as well as the micro- and macroevolutionary ...
