We study meiotic recombination and chromosome segregation in S. cerevisiae as model organism, to understand the interplay between chromosome structure and recombination. During meiosis, the genetic content of a diploid cell is reduced to half, a prerequisite for the production of gametes and for sexual reproduction. Our experience shows, that the important processes are conserved between yeast and man, so that many of our findings can be generalized
