Friday beautiful science

Today's Friday beautiful science comes from the Xenbase, a database of information for Xenopus workers. Xenopus is a pretty well-known model organism that is used to study embryology, because it's easy to work with and the fertilized eggs are enormous. Note how after fertilization the cells divide and divide without growing. Very cool. There's a bunch of other cool movies over there. Go check them out.
