Comments "Analysis of meiosis in the flowering plant, Arabidopsis thaliana L. (2 n =10) , is a growing area of research. Arabidopsis has a number of positive attributes for meiotic studies, including a large pool of tagged meiotic mutants and the molecular tools available to characterize them (Caryl et al ., 2003). As cytology and cytogenetics are central to meiotic studies, this review aims to bring together existing information on these important aspects of meiosis in wild-type Arabidopsis." Notice that this is the 2n value, i.e. counting the sister chromosomes as two separate chromosomes
