Created by Peter Thorpe, Wenjun Guo, Elena Ledesma-Fernandez.
The image shows a micrograph of dividing yeast cells with the DNA labelled in blue and two of the proteins responsible for separating the DNA labelled yellow and red. The labels are genetically encoded fluorescent proteins, recreated here with fluorescent paint, which can be viewed with ultra-violet light. We seek to identify conditions that alter the normal pattern of protein location and are therefore important for cell division.
