	Hi,
	I'm an undergraduate student here in Guelph, and I'm doing
a thesis project on gene conversion in D.m.  I've read a bit and I have 
a question...
	Can anyone give me, or point me to, some information about
why people believe gene conversion and meiotic recombination are 
related.  Why do all the X-over models think they should explain 
conversion... Given the ratios (20% of conversions-->X-over, and 
50% of X-overs show affiliated conversion) why do we think the two 
are part of the same process??
	Thanks in advance,

		-criedl
