Mmmmm, mitosis

Biodork shows us a delicious new way of illustrating mitosis:I hate how every biology class I’ve ever taken feels the need to reteach us mitosis – but if this is how we learned it, I think it would be a lot more fun!

    The sad thing is, some people forget in that short amount of time.

    Om nom nom M&Ms. Sometimes you make me feel stupid, and this is one of those times. I'm off to read more about mitosis!

    Don't feel stupid about not knowing mitosis unless you're a senior about to get your degree in Biology. Then you should feel stupid, since we've relearned it 15 times.

    Considering how much maths, chemistry and physics I've had retaught, you don't get to complain.

    (But I don't recall anything about mitosis, though I suspect I've been taught it twice.)

    I hate that almost every lecture series I took felt the need to remind me about Mendel's Peas :) And not quickly going over either, usually at least an hour on it…

    hehe – that's my stuff on blaghag.com! I'm totally big time now. Seriously though, thanks for the mention and I'm glad you liked it. We were going to create a second set so we could have mitosis AND meiosis, but it turns out coloring on M&Ms isn't as easy as one might think (who thinks about coloring on M&Ms?) Plus, our sugar intake by the time we finished the daughter cells was such that we couldn't really draw fine lines anymore because of our jittery hands.

    Biodork forgot to illustrate the bit between anaphase and telophase…

    Smileyphase!
