Cell division is a fundamental process for life. Besides mitosis in somatic cells and meiosis in germ cells, Chen-Hui Chen and colleagues discovered a deviant form of cell division in live zebrafish larvae that accounts for a drastic increase of cell number during development. The study is published in May 2022 in the journal Nature.
