Metaphase! Image of the Week - November 13, 2017  CIL:44601 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/44601  Shown is a mitotic PtK2 cell at metaphase immunostained for microtubules (red) and kinetochores (green) with DNA stained blue. The image was obtained using structured illumination microscopy (SIM, Deltavision OMX system) which provides 'super-resolution' beyond the diffraction limit set by the wavelength of the illuminating light.

Telophase! Image of the Week - December 4, 2017  CIL:198 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/198  Lily mitosis. A light microscope image of a cell from the endosperm of an African globe lily Haemanthus (Scadoxus) katherinae. This is one frame of a sequence that shows all phases of mitosis. The lily is considered a good organism for studying cell division because its endosperm has a liquid phase and chromosomes are thick and easier to see than human ones.  Andrew S. Bajer  Public Domain

Fluorescent fungus -- Slime mould is no ordinary mould - it's a fungus that also has animal genes. Although they possess no nervous system, slime moulds have been shown to navigate mazes and communicate with one another.

Spor-rific! Image of the Week - February 12, 2018  CIL:38941 -http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/38941  A light micrograph of a thin slice through a cup fungus called Peziza. It grows on decaying wood and organic matter and reproduces itself by producing ascospores. This section shows the fungus' spore containers (asci) each with eight ascospores (shown in brown).

Image of the Week - November 20, 2017  CIL:39037 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/39037  An anoptral contrast micrograph of a planktonic freshwater rotifer. The rotifer are microscopic but complex animals (mostly less than 1mm long) found in wet habitats. They are important members of the freshwater plankton of lakes. The sexes are separate but males are often rare or even unknown.   Spike Walker  CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 UK

Do I look swollen? 9/25/17  http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/38939  This confocal micrograph shows the mumps virus protein (turquoise) in the endoplasmic reticulum of a cultured cell. This is a region of the cell that processes proteins. This particular protein is possibly involved in determining how effectively the virus can infect people. By looking at how it works, new and more efficient vaccines could be developed.    Paul Duprex  CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 UK

mumps virus protein (turquoise) in the endoplasmic reticulum of a cultured cell. The different cells are roughly outlined in red, which stains the internal skeleton of the cells.

Image of the Week - February 5, 2018  CIL:50201 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/50201  A longstanding limitation of imaging with serial block-face scanning electron microscopy is specimen surface charging. This charging is largely due to the difficulties in making biological specimens and the resins in which they are embedded sufficiently conductive.
