Visualizing Human Cells Dividing

The Allen Institute for Cell Science has released a data visualization tool called Integrated Mitotic Stem Cell, allowing users to visualize how human cells divide for the first time. The Allen Institute created the tool using images of 75 representative cells from its catalog of 40,000 cell images, and users can view different cellular structures in 3D and watch the cells change shape, duplicate, or reassemble. The tool can help researchers study diseases that can result from cell divisions that leave new cells with too many or too few chromosomes, such as cancer.

Take a look.
