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
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.
