"Progressive recognition and juxtaposition of homologous chromosomes during meiosis. Chromosome axes of the filamentous fungus Sordaria macrospora as illuminated by fluorescently-tagged axis protein (Spo76-GFP). (In collaboration with Denise Zickler, U. Paris-Sud, Orsay, France). Pre-synaptic coalignment (leptotene) followed by synapsis (zygotene, pachytene)."
