Division cellulaire de cellules HeLa observées en microscopie de fluorescence

Division of HeLa cells marked using the DAPI molecule (blue), observed using a fluorescence microscope. Here, the aim of the research scientists is to study the molecular mechanisms that control cell division. The fluorescence microscope image shows several cells, including one in the process of dividing with its DNA strangely taking the form of a heart.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
