Meiosis is the specialized cell division that generates haploid germ cells, a requirement to compensate for doubling of the chromosomal content after fertilization. Meiosis also ensures genetic diversity by recombination. Defects in this process lead to unfaithful chromosome segregation and are a major cause for miscarriages and birth defects. For successful recombination in meiotic prophase, homologous chromosomes have to recognize each other, pair, and
