'Mitotic spindles' could help develop better chemo drugs

'Mitotic spindles' could help develop better chemo drugs

Cells use a tiny machine called the mitotic spindle to share genetic material equally between cells when they divide. But when this process goes wrong it can lead to cancer.\n\n\n\n\n<br><br>\n<i><u>Cellular Splits (Text 4)</u> -- This text is part of an Investigation Set that explores cell structure and division. In this text, the author, a cancer researcher, describes a recent discovery that could lead to more effective cancer drug therapies. As students read, they should use their understanding of cell structures and cell division to explain how errors in this process could lead to cancer as well as how this research could address those errors.\n<br><br>\n<a href="https://files.actively
