Chromosome condensation: Packaging the genome

  title={Chromosome condensation: Packaging the genome},
  author={Frank Uhlmann},
  journal={Current Biology},
The packaging of centimetre long DNA molecules into compact metaphase chromosomes is essential for genome segregation in anaphase. The chromosomal condensin complex plays a crucial part in this packaging, and important new insight into condensin action in vitro and in vivo has recently been gained.
