Cell division and DNA, Jim Kent

Interviewee: Jim Kent. Cell division and DNA.
When the cell divides it has to make a copy of the chromosome to partition between the two daughter cells, and there's a certain bit, the centromere, that is where sort of things attach to pull the two chromosomes apart into the dividing cells. And that is not a huge fraction of the genome, but that's another bit of it.
