A Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center-led team takes a look at double-strand break patterns in the mouse genome in an effort to more clearly understand meiotic recombination. Using primers coinciding with SPO11 sequences associated with double-strand breaks, the researchers mapped such breaks genome-wide in male mice, uncovering regions between methylated nucleosomes that were particularly prone to these breaks.
