Meiotic recombination promotes genetic variation by mixing parental alleles. Two recent studies, one in this issue of Developmental Cell, have applied microarray-based methods that allow analysis of nearly all of the recombination events occurring in a single meiosis. These data provide insights into the molecular "decisions" that control the outcome of the recombination process.
