Stages of cell division in animals and plants

Laplane's description: In these drawings, I tried to highlight Inoue’s investigation on mitotic spindle during cell division. Inoue was observing the mitotic spindle through their birefringence. This particular kind of observation is associated with a particular imaging of the cells where one mainly sees the mitotic spindles, to the expense of other cell elements. Because of this focus, my drawings depart from classical drawing of cell division in several ways.

By the 1930s, the MBL had become "the" place to go during the summer for biological research and training. Luminaries such as Frank Lillie, Edmund Beecher Wilson, Edwin Grant Conklin, and Thomas Hunt Morgan took their students, packed up their families and research labs, and headed to the MBL. They worked in labs, ate together in the Mess, and they often lived in the limited on-campus housing. Life at the MBL was a life where fun, family, and science intertwined. This film, taken in 1935 by B. R. Coonfield of Brooklyn College, captures snippets of life at the MBL.
