A cell divides in two as its chromosomes (yellow) peel apart from each other. Stepping away from traditional textbook drawings, this 3D illustrationgives a deeper look at the process of mitosis. Researchers created it using a specialised fluorescent protein (upper left) that attaches to DNA, lighting up the chromosomes under an electron microscope. The image won the people’s choice award in the competition’s illustration category.
