I am having some problems understanding recombination, and I am not sure what element I am missing here. This figure is an example from my text book. The pedigree belongs to a family with an autosomal dominant disease, typed for a marker with alleles A1-A6.
So, all meioses are phase-known, meaning we know which combination of alleles was inherited from each parent. Apparently this leads us to be able to unambiguously score III1-III5 as non-recombinant (N) and III6 as recombinant (R).
This is were I get lost, I don't understand how it is possible to unambiguously score each individual as N or R. Also, if the disease is dominant, how is it possible that III6 is affected, as both alleles originate from the both unaffected I1 and II2?
EDIT: Blue colour in the pedigree means the person is affected by disease, white symbolizes unaffected individuals. I believe the red stars symbolizes that the person carries the disease gene. That would mean blue corresponds to not carrying the disease gene. If this is the case The red colour of III2 is a fault in the figure.
