    Faculty of Life Sciences, Michael Smith Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
    Dev Cell 22:775-87. 2012
    ..We propose that this dynamic mechanism maintains symmetric divisions while allowing the quick adjustment of division plane to facilitate even tissue spreading...

    Sarah Woolner
    Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester, UK
    Trends Cell Biol 19:245-52. 2009

    Sarah Woolner
    University of Manchester, Manchester, UK
    Methods Mol Biol 586:23-39. 2009
    ..Here, we describe an approach to image the cytoskeleton in embryos of the frog, Xenopus laevis, using mRNA to express fluorescently tagged cytoskeletal probes and confocal microscopy to visualize their dynamic behavior...
