Description: Both the length and amount of DNA are problems for chromosome segregation, particularly in eukaryotic cells. The actions of cohesion and chromosome condensation serve as solutions. The mitotic machinery is introduced in this talk, including its diversity of form across phylogeny, and the features that appear to be conserved are emphasized.
