Let's Split Mitosis-Style

submitted by: Destroyer501

I, Harold, am playing as a student who got home late and needs to work on a paper for mitosis. As I am working, I realize that I am too tired and need to rest. While I'm leaving I spill my cup and out falls all the materials required in the video onto my paper, displaying some stages of mitosis. While I'm resting, I have a dream of myself rapping about mitosis, explaining some steps and elements of the process.

biosights: October 29, 2012 - A stiff test for collectively migrating cells

submitted by: JCB
The mechanical properties of the extracellular matrix are known to regulate the migration of single cells, but whether substrate stiffness also affects collective cell migration is unclear. Ng et al. reveal that epithelial sheets move faster on stiffer matrices due to increased myosin contractility and mechanical coupling through cell-cell adhesions. This biosights episode presents the paper by Ng et al. from the October 29, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an...
