Description

Meiosis in Development and Disease, Volume 151 in the Current Topics in Developmental Biology series, highlights new advances in the field, with this new volume presenting interesting chapters on topics such as The initiation stages of meiosis, The molecular basis and dynamics of meiotic cohesions, and their significance in human infertility, Chromatin, recombination, and the centromeres, Sites and structures that mediate segregation when crossing over calls out sick/Life (or at Least Meiosis) Without Crossing Over, Crossover maturation inefficiency, Non coding RNA mediated gene regulation in meiosis, Short chromosomes in meiotic recombination, Chromatin level changes during meiosis initiation vs. oncogenesis, and much more. Other sections of note include Chromosomal speciation revisited: Meiotic recombination and synapsis of evolutionary diverged homologs, Recombination suppression at specific chromosome regions, Unwinding during stressful times - mechanisms of helicases in meiotic recombination, Meiotic functions of PCH-2/TRIP13 and HORMADs, Crossover interference, Checkpoint control in meiotic prophase: Idiosyncratic demands require unique characteristics, The breadth of meiotic drive genes and mechanisms across the tree of life, and many more interesting topics.
