Although the DNA-binding protein PRDM9 plays a critical role in the specification of meiotic recombination hotspots in mice and apes, it appears to be absent from many vertebrate species, including birds. To learn about the determinants of fine-scale recombination rates and their evolution in natural populations lacking PRDM9, we inferred fine-scale recombination maps from population resequencing data for two bird species, the zebra finchTaeniopygia guttata, and the long-tailed finch,Poephiladoi:10.1101/023101 fatcat:zpn7musj6jghxkt3h3wpar5b2u
