Recently, many genomic and epigenomic features have been associated with recombination hotspots, but none of them can explain hotspots consistently. It is highly desirable to integrate the different features into a predictive model, and study the relation of the features with hotspots and themselves with a systems approach. Moreover, due to rapid and dynamic evolution of recombination hotspots, regulatory mechanisms of hotspots that are evolutionarily conserved among species remain unclear. We propose a machine learning approach that encode genomic and epigenomic features into a support vector machine (SVM). Trained on known hotspots and coldspots in human and mouse genomes, the model is able to predict hotspots based on the features with good performance in both species. Moreover, the model reports a ranking of feature importance, uncovering the interactions of the features with hotspots and themselves. Applying the method to large-scale data, we identified evolutionarily conserved patterns of trans-regulators and feature importance between human and mouse hotspots. This is the first attempt to build a predictive model to identify evolutionarily conserved mechanisms for recombination hotspots by integrating both genomic and epigenomic features.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/97678
