Mitosis in early embryos

Studying cell division in early embryos is notoriously difficult, but thanks to CRISP/Cas-9 mediated genome editing, Japanese rice fish, and new imaging techniques, these timelapses have now become possible. Professor Tomomi Kiyomitsu from the Cell Division Dynamics Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology explains the new techniques and how they help us understand cell division at the earliest stages of life.
