Any Process in Which a New Genotype Is Formed by Reassortment of Genes Resulting in Gene Combinations Different From Those That Were Present in the Parents. in Eukaryotes Genetic Recombination Can Occur by Chromosome Assortment Intrachromosomal Recombination or Nonreciprocal Interchromosomal Recombination. Intrachromosomal Recombination Occurs by Crossing Over. in Bacteria It May Occur by Genetic Transformation Conjugation Transduction or F Duction.
The Process in Which Genetic Material in the Form of Chromosomes Is Organized Into Specific Structures and Then Physically Separated and Apportioned to Two or More Sets. in Eukaryotes Chromosome Segregation Begins with the Condensation of Chromosomes Includes Chromosome Separation and Ends When Chromosomes Have Completed Movement to the Spindle Poles.
Catalysis of the Formation of New Phosphodiester Bonds Between a Pair of Short Unique DNA Target Sequences; Occurs Through a Phosphotyrosyl Intermediate in Which the Target Sequence Is First Cleaved by the Nucleophilic Attack by a Tyrosine in the Active Site.
