Proper segregation of chromosomes in Meiosis I requires proper function of the Synaptonemal Complex (SC), a zipper-like protein structure that facilitates recombination events and segregation of homologous chromosomes. Candidates which suppress the phenotype show sporulation and fluorescence on media, and have higher spore viabilities compared to our Zip1C1 control.
