Date: Mar 2, 2015. Minghui Wang: Genome-wide crossover distribution in the population of maize B73 and Mo17

Minghui Wang is a Postdoctoral Associate at the BRC Bioinformatics Facility on campus.

Crossovers (COs) are essential for the accurate segregation of homologous chromosomes at the first meiotic division. However, CO are not evenly distributed across genome. Their number and location are tightly regulated. Here, we report a detailed, genome-wide characterization of the rate and localization of COs in maize, in male and female meiosis.
