Future Research on Mitosis

If we are to contemplate the future of research on mitosis, we might first reflect on the past and the present. The beginnings of this field were stunning; they belong among the greatest events in the history of biology. By pure observation that developed sight into insight, our predecessors were able to discover an unimaginable process — one that could never have come out of anyone’s head — which explained the accurate reproduction of cells and was the basis for the immediate explanation of basic problems of sexual reproduction, fertilization, development, and heredity. One sometimes thinks it might have been interesting to be around at that time, but the price of being dead now would be too great.
