Copenhaver GP. Plant genetics: when not to interfere. Curr Biol. 2005;15(8):R290-1.
New evidence suggests that the model plant Arabidopsis has two biochemically distinct pathways that produce genetic crossovers. Studies in several organisms have revealed that one kind of crossover regulation - crossover interference - is applied differently from species to species. Arabidopsis appears to use an interference system similar to that of budding yeast.
