The role of HEI10 in directing class I crossovers in the mouse

We are proud to have played a part in a new publication from our friend and collaborator, Dr. Neil Hunter. In this paper, Neil's lab, together with the lab of John Schimenti, demonstrate a critical role for HEI10 in modulating DSB repair events towards crossover designation. See our publications page for further details.
