Making crossovers during meiosis.

Abstract:

Homologous recombination (HR) is required to promote both correct chromosome segregation and genetic variation during meiosis. For this to be successful recombination intermediates must be resolved to generate reciprocal exchanges or 'crossovers' between the homologous chromosomes (homologues) during the first meiotic division. Crossover recombination promotes faithful chromosome segregation by establishing connections (chiasmata) between the homologues, which help guide their proper bipolar ...
