||research followed up to 4000 single cells at 5–10 min intervals under a fluorescent microscope for 18–45 hr as they underwent meiosis. External factors (temperature, nutrient flow) were kept constant and uniform across cells.
||This stage, the precommitment interval, is highly variable from cell to cell whereas the postcommitment interval is far less variable (see BNID 102528)
