Meiosis: Location, Location, Location, How Crossovers Ensure Segregation

Curr Biol. 2020 Apr 6;30(7):R311-R313. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2020.02.020.


The proper behavior of homologous chromosomes at the first meiotic division is usually ensured by crossing over. A new study shows that crossover position influences the successful completion of the chromatin remodeling processes that facilitate homologous segregation.
