Are there any databases or papers that give recombination frequency as a function of position in the E coli genome?

  • $\begingroup$ What kind of recombination do you mean? $\endgroup$ – har-wradim Nov 12 '14 at 11:17
  • $\begingroup$ Homologous recombination. $\endgroup$ – Sonia Nov 12 '14 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ No, I mean: which process? There are several processes involving recombination in bacteria, which require enzymes and different substrates. For example, recombination-mediated DNA repair occurs at sites of DNA damage (which can happen at any location, albeit with unequal frequencies), while conjugational recombination is much more location-bound. $\endgroup$ – har-wradim Nov 15 '14 at 13:40
