Abstract

The centromeres of higher plants and animals share many common features, though current models fail to account for all aspects of centromere composition and function. This dilemma is likely to be resolved in the next few years in Arabidopsis where robust assays for centromere function are available and the sequence of the entire genome will be determined.
