Method 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.
Comments This stage, the precommitment interval, is highly variable from cell to cell whereas the postcommitment interval is far less variable (see BNID 102528)
