Using a novel method to sequence large numbers of sperm genomes, researchers have generated new insights into meiotic diversity among gametes. As reported in this week's Nature, the technique, dubbed Sperm-seq, involves decondensing tightly compacted sperm nuclei by mimicking the unpacking process used by eggs, then encapsulating the sperm DNA with barcoding beads.
