Discussion: Perspectives and Future Directions Regarding the Mechanisms of Aneuploidy
I have been asked by the organizers of this Symposium to offer some “perspectives and future directions” regarding the mechanisms of aneuploidy. Perhaps, in a way, this meeting is historical because for the first time, a number of people from various disciplines have come together, including clinicians who are concerned daily with problems and consequences of aneuploidy, government scientists who must determine the risk of agents producing aneuploidy, counselors who work with patients, and basic researchers who are interested in the fundamental biology and biochemistry of cell division and chromosome distribution. Indeed it is a wonderful opportunity for constructive interaction.
