How the zebra(fish) got its stripes

The zebrafish skin’s alternating pattern of blue stripes and yellow interstripes depends on light-reflecting cells…

Nematode Spindle

Ultimate proximate divisions: towards an integrated understanding of evolutionary and mechanistic aspects of mitosis

A new mechanistic model of spindle structure and dynamics explains its diversity across 100 million years of evolution.
