The pairing of homologous chromosomes is a universal feature of meiosis and is important for the accurate segregation of chromosomes in the first of two meiotic divisions. In the March issue of Developmental Cell, Ding et al. (2004) report findings in fission yeast which point to telomere clustering and movement as being important determinants of homolog pairing.
