[Arabidopsis] question on linkage of two loci

Hello colleagues,

We want to get double mutants for two paralogous genes using single
mutants to cross in Arabidopsis. The two genes are on the same arm of
a chromosome wth the AGI# being At2g16400 and At2g10740. Roughly there
are (16400-10740)/10=566 genes between these two genes.

My question is:
how to calculate the genetical distance (in cM) or crossing-over
percentage between the two genes, based on the AGI#?
Is it possible to get double mutants for these two linked genes? How
many lines should we screen in F2 seedlings?

thanks for your input,
