This 3D illustration created by Audra Geras for a biotechnology client gives a dramatic view of chromosome pairs being pulled apart by the microtubules of the mitotic spindle during cell division or mitosis. It is the first of a pair of illustrations. The second shows the disruption of this process by the blocking of aurora kinase.
