Abstract

Chromosomes have been counted with the light microscope in fixed and stained preparations of Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The least ambiguous images were seen in zygotes fixed at meta-, ana- and telophase of meiosis II. They suggest that the haploid number of chromosomes in S. pombe is three.
