centiMorgan (cM)

A centiMorgan is the distance between two chromosome positions. One centiMorgan is the distance where the expected average number of intervening chromosomal crossovers in a single generation is 0.01. This is not a physical measurement. The number of base pairs per centiMorgan varies across the autosomal and X-chromosomes.
