Overview

Mitosis and meiosis are process of nuclear division in cells. This volume is a practical handbook on the modern techniques used to study mitosis and meiosis, with an emphasis on the composition and function of centrosomes, spindle pole bodies, and kinetochore structure. It also includes basic principles used in the selection of cells for specific scientific study, as well as analytical and procedural techniques.

Key Features
• Chapters Contain Information On:
• How to generate, screen, and study mutants of mitosis in yeast, fungi, and flies
• Techniques to best image fluorescent and nonfluorescent tagged dividing cells
• The use and action of mitoclastic drugs
• How to generate antibodies to mitotic components and inject them into cells
• Methods that can also be used to obtain information on cellular processes in nondividing cells
