Chromosome maneuvers in mitosis lead to controlled chromosome distribution to the daughter cells. This makes an understanding of the cellular mechanism involved central to the problems of inheritance and development: the perpetuation of the chromosome complement is a primary process on which all else depends. The range of disciplines interested in mitosis now extends to medicine because of recent studies on abnormal chromosome complements in man. But as usual, it is the intriguing complexity and beauty of the process itself which animates most researchers.
