Abstract

The determination of a precise number of cells within a structure and of a precise number of cellular structures within an organ is critical for correct development in animals and plants. However, relatively little is known about the molecular mechanisms that ensure that these numbers are achieved. We discuss counting mechanisms that operate during ovarian development and oogenesis.
