Are all chromosomes equal during mitosis? Do they all segregate with the same accuracy? Does it matter where they come from? Dr. Tolić will discuss these topics and show how the chromosomes located behind the spindle pole reach the spindle midplane and how this unfavorable starting position puts them at risk of mis-segregation. These biased segregation errors may contribute to the distinct aneuploid karyotypes observed in cancers and during embryonic development.
