Spare cyclin? Snapshot of GAL1pr-Sic1delta3p strain growing under galactose induction in CellAsic microfluidic device. Sic1delta3p is an undegradable, stoichiometric inhibitor of B-type cyclins. Phase contrast image acquired with 60x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo by David Winski.

Buddies in the Malthusian Nightmare: Snapshot of a growing yeast micro-colony in CellAsic microfluidic device. DIC and fluorescence image acquired with 100x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo by Charlie Cooper.

yeastcancer-karapetyan

Yeast chemotherapy: Snapshot of a yeast micro-colony in CellAsic microfluidic device during hydroxyurea and nocodazole block. These drugs are chemotherapeutic agents that block the eukaryotic cell division cycle at different checkpoints. Red fluorescent protein is localized to nucleus. Phase contrast and fluorescence images acquired with 63x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo by Sargis Karapetyan.

luciferasexmas-mazovargasLuciferase Elf: Luminescence snapshot of a mixed yeast micro-colony (red and green beetle luciferases) in CellAsic microfluidic device. Phase contrast and luminescence images acquired with 63x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo by Anyi Mazo-Vargas.

whereismom-parkWhere is my mom?:  Snapshot of a fission yeast micro-colony with constitutively expressed GFP in CellAsic microfluidic device. Unlike budding yeast, fission yeast divide symmetrically with little visual distinction between mother and daughter cells. Phase contrast and fluorescence image acquired with 63x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo by Heungwon Park.

chytrid_astronaut

Chytrid astronaut:  Snapshot of a chytrid (Spizellomyces punctatus) dreaming of going where no basal fungus has gone before. Chytrids are unique within fungi by producing zoospores (spores with a flagellum that can swim). Phase contrast image acquired with 63x objective on Deltavision Elite. Photo and photoshop by Edgar Medina.
