Researchers Identify Key Players in Cell Division

New findings help answer foundational questions about cell genesis and survival

One of the most fundamental questions in biology lies at the heart of cell division. All living cells have the ability to regenerate through cell division, when a mother cell gives rise to two daughter cells. Although cell division has been studied extensively and is considered an essential process for the continuation and evolution of all living organisms, a central question remains: How are the mother and daughter cell components produced and fully maintained?
