Chromosome pairing at meiosis is an essential feature in cell biology, which determines trait inheritance and species evolution. Complex polyploids may display diverse pairing affinities and offer favorable situations for studying meiosis. The genus Saccharum encompasses diverse forms of polyploids with predominantly bivalent pairing. We have focused on a modern cultivar of sugarcane, R570, and taken advantage of a particular single copy probe (BNL 12.06) revealing 11 alleles by restriction… 
Unique genomic configuration revealed by microsatellite DNA in polyploid dogroses, Rosa sect. Caninae
TLDR
Bivalent formation appears to involve chromosomes that consistently share the same microsatellite alleles in maternally transmitted and highly conserved univalent‐forming chromosomes, reflecting the taxonomic distance between different genotypes.
Meiosis in Polyploids and Implications for Genetic Mapping: A Review
TLDR
This review describes in detail the meiotic process in auto- and allopolyploids from the onset of prophase I through pairing, recombination, and bivalent formation, highlighting recent findings on the genetic control and mode of action of specific proteins that lead to diploid-like meiosis behavior in polyploid species.
Analysis of genome-wide linkage disequilibrium in the highly polyploid sugarcane
TLDR
Assessment of LD in sugarcane, characterized by one of the most complex crop genomes, with its high ploidy level and chromosome number as well as its interspecific origin, found that LD within a sample of cultivars appears as efficient as linkage analysis within a controlled progeny in terms of assigning markers to cosegregation groups.
Meiosis in Polyploid Plants
TLDR
A more relaxed control of pairing and segregation in polyploids might be an important contribution to evolution and adaptation potential, especially under drastic or frequent changes in environmental conditions.
Diploid/Polyploid Syntenic Shuttle Mapping and Haplotype-Specific Chromosome Walking Toward a Rust Resistance Gene (Bru1) in Highly Polyploid Sugarcane (2n ∼ 12x ∼ 115)
TLDR
This is the first attempt to isolate a gene from sugarcane by map-based cloning, targeting a durable major rust resistance gene (Bru1), and describes the genomic strategies that have developed to overcome constraints associated with high polyploidy in the successive steps of map- based cloning approaches.
A mosaic monoploid reference sequence for the highly complex genome of sugarcane
TLDR
It is shown that the two species, S. officinarum and S. spontaneum, involved in modern cultivars differ by their transposable elements and by a few large chromosomal rearrangements, explaining their distinct genome size and distinct basic chromosome numbers while also suggesting that polyploidization arose in both lineages after their divergence.
Chromosome segregation in an allotetraploid banana hybrid (AAAB) suggests a translocation between the A and B genomes and results in eBSV-free offsprings
TLDR
Analysis of gamete composition and marker association suggested the presence of a large translocation between A and B genome involving chromosome 1 and 3, and it was showed that both eBSVs were absent from 24 offspring that represent promising material for breeding.
Preferential Homologous Chromosome Pairing in a Tetraploid Intergeneric Somatic Hybrid (Citrus reticulata + Poncirus trifoliata) Revealed by Molecular Marker Inheritance
TLDR
This work assessed the meiotic behavior of an intergeneric tetraploid somatic hybrid resulting from symmetric protoplast fusion of diploid Citrus reticulata and diploids Poncirus trifoliata, and found strong but incomplete preferential pairing between homologues of the same ancestral genome.
Cytogenetic and SSR-marker evidence of mixed disomic, tetrasomic, and intermediate inheritance in a citrus allotetraploid somatic hybrid between ‘Nova’ tangelo and ‘HB’ pummelo
TLDR
The meiotic inheritance pattern was evaluated in a citrus allotetraploid somatic hybrid between ‘Nova’ tangelo and ‘HB’ (Hirado Buntan) pummelo through cytogenetic observation of meiosis and segregation analysis using 18 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers.
Competition for Chiasma Formation Between Identical and Homologous (But Not Identical) Chromosomes in Synthetic Autotetraploids of Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Results reveal the existence of chromosome-specific mechanisms responsible for chiasma formation between identical and homologous chromosomes 3 and reveal that there are more than two autonomous synaptic sites per chromosome despite their small size.

A general polyploid model for analyzing gene segregation in outcrossing tetraploid species.
TLDR
Simulation studies show that the polyploid model is well suited to estimate the preferential pairing factor and the frequency of double reduction at meiosis, which should help to characterize gene segregation in the progeny of autopolyploids.
Chromosome pairing affinity and quadrivalent formation in polyploids: do segmental allopolyploids exist?
TLDR
In exceptional cases it is thinkable that a stable segmental allopolyploid arises, in which some sets of chromosomes are well differentiated and behave as in an allopoly Ploid, whereas other sets are not well differentiatedand behave asIn an autopolyploid.
From Diploids to Allopolyploids: The Emergence of Efficient Pairing Control Genes in Plants
TLDR
It is shown that very good evidence has been adduced for the presence and activity of pairing control genes in different allopolyploid species that are entirely bivalent forming and that display a strict disomic inheritance.
Detailed alignment of saccharum and sorghum chromosomes: comparative organization of closely related diploid and polyploid genomes.
TLDR
The complex polyploid genomes of three Saccharum species have been aligned with the compact diploid genome of Sorghum, raising new questions about the antiquity of S. spontaneum and up to 72 linkage groups were assembled into "homologous groups" based on parallel arrangements of duplicated loci.
The detection and estimation of linkage in polyploids using single-dose restriction fragments
TLDR
An analysis of problems and a general method for mapping polyploids based on segregation of single-dose restriction fragments (SDRFS) are presented and it is estimated that a population size of 75 is required to identify SDRFs with 98% level of confidence for the four ploidy levels.
RFLP mapping in cultivated sugarcane (Saccharum spp.): genome organization in a highly polyploid and aneuploid interspecific hybrid.
TLDR
A mapping study on the progeny of a selfed cultivar, R570, suggested the prevalence of random pairing between chromosomes, typical of autopolyploids, however, cases of preferential pairing between S. spontaneum chromosomes were also detected.
Characterisation of the double genome structure of modern sugarcane cultivars (Saccharum spp.) by molecular cytogenetics
TLDR
Using comparative genomic DNA in situ hybridization, it is demonstrated that it is possible to distinguish the chromosomes contributed by these two species in an interspecific F1 hybrid and a cultivated clone, R570, and for the first time the occurrence of recombination between the chromosomes of these twospecies.
Gene segregation in autotetraploids: prediction from meiotic configurations
TLDR
A new meiotic configuration (MC) method of analyzing tetrasomic inheritance in autotetraploids that allows more accurate estimations of all intermediate types of segregation and good fits to the standard methods are presented.
Chromosome assortment in Saccharum
TLDR
Complete polysomic inheritance was not observed in either species, suggesting that chromosomal behavior is different from that observed by linkage analysis of over 500 markers in the S. spontaneum map.
Secondary tetrasomic segregation of MDH-B and preferential pairing of homeologues in rainbow trout.
TLDR
A two-stage model of pairing in male meiosis in which homologous chromosomes pair and recombine in the proximal region of the chromosome is proposed and this type of tetrasomic inheritance in which centromeres segregate disomically should be referred to as "secondary tetraomy" to distinguish it from tetrasomy involving entire chromosomes.
