Meiosis is a special type of cell division process universally required for sexual reproduction. Work in this issue addresses how meiotic recombination is coordinated with dramatic changes observed in chromosome and nuclear organization during meiosis in C. elegans (see Carlton et al.). DNA is shown in red and the recombination protein RAD-51 in green.
