This early embryo of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, expresses fluorescently labeled proteins to detect DNA and plasma membrane dynamics. As the embryo develops, its DNA is replicated and divided over and over again to rapidly generate thousands of cells. Within each membrane bound compartment shown here, replicated DNA from one nucleus aligns and then divides to make two daughter nuclei.
