Recent advances in microscopy and in fluorescence labeling of proteins allow the observation of complex biological processes in living organisms. This movie shows the early stages of embryonic development of a fruit fly egg, which is half a millimeter in size. In the first part of the movie, the observation of fluorescently labeled histones (proteins that help packaging the chromosomes into a compact nucleoprotein structure in the cell) reveals the dynamics of the mitotic divisions of the ...
