Description

Meiosis is one type of cell division that produces germ cells. In Meiosis I, the DNA in a diploid cell is doubled and homologous chromosomes separate. In Meiosis II, each pair of sister chromatids are separated, resulting in four haploid daughter cells. The nine intervals were analyzed under several conditions and the number, timing, and distribution of crossovers was determined. Results and their compatibility with current models of synaptonemal complex functions will be discussed.
