Chromosome segregation ensures the equal inheritance of genetic material among progeny across generations. Accurate segregation is essential to maintaining genomic integrity and preventing catastrophic outcomes. Over the years, we have broadened our understanding of the myriad pathways that control this central process required to maintain life in perpetuity, but some aspects remain unaddressed.
In this Special Issue, first, we hope to reflect on recent advances in understanding the functional basis for error correction in mitosis. Error correction mechanisms, including those controlling anaphase chromosome movement, have been studied for years, but we especially want to focus on recent studies that revisit models for how chromosomes are segregated accurately to each pole. Second, we would like to cover recent studies on the highly error-prone oocyte chromosome segregation process, including acentrosomal spindle assembly, maternal aging, early embryonic aneuploidy, meiotic checkpoints, and female meiotic drive or biased segregation.
We envision that this Special Issue will provide a holistic view of the existing models and upcoming new models for error-free segregation mechanisms in both mitosis and meiosis, ultimately reflecting on the progress of this field and considering future directions. We welcome mini-reviews, review articles, and original research articles focused on this topic across a diverse array of model systems.
We look forward to your contributions to this Special Issue of Cells.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
