What can be measured in centimorgans?

The distance between molecules in solution
The length of chemical bonds
the The distance between chromosome positions
The length of protein structures
In ge­net­ic­s, a cen­ti­mor­gan (ab­bre­vi­at­ed cM) is a unit for mea­sur­ing genetic linkage. It is defined as the distance between chro­mo­some po­si­tions for which the expected average number of in­ter­ven­ing chro­mo­so­mal crossovers in a single gen­er­a­tion is 0.01. It is often used to infer distance along a chro­mo­some. However, It is not a true physical dis­tance.
