Description

Meiosis I is characterized by events taking place between homologous chromosomes called crossing over in which double stand breaks (DSB) are formed and repaired using the homologous chromosome as a template. To see if Gene A shared the same role as Gene B, double mutants were created to test chromosome segregation and DSB repair as compared with Gene B deletions. The spore viability of double mutants and their potential implications will be discussed.
