(3D SIM)
Cells were imaged as they have just divided and start separating from another… though not just quite yet, still hanging on by a thread! In grey the nuclear lamin can be seen, giving a 3D mesh over the nucleus, while the telomeres (yellow) highlight the ends of the now-decondensed chromosomes, hopefully all segregated correctly between the sister cells!
