'Celldance 2011' reveals beauty and danger in microscopic world of cells
Date:12/2/2011

Beautiful, astounding, and at times lethal, life on the cellular level comes into vivid focus in the seven dazzling videos just named winners in "Celldance 2011," the American Society for Cell Biology's (ASCB) film contest.

The winning entries showing the cell, the structural and functional unit of all living organisms, in video action were announced at Sat., Dec. 3, 2011, at the ASCB 2011 annual meeting in Denver.

The top winners will receive $1,000 in cash prizes at the Celldance awards ceremony, Tues., Dec. 6, at the Colorado Convention Center.

Cell biology is considered the most visual of all the life sciences because research has always been driven by new imaging technologies that reveal the structure and function of living organisms at microscopic and submicroscopic scale.

The "stars" of "Celldance 2011" range from fibroblasts, the most common cells in connective tissue, to a "cancer dance" visible in the plasma membrane of tumor cells.

The seven award-winning Celldance 2011 videos are posted at- http://ascb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=737&Itemid=338X.

The first-place award of $500 recognizes a time-lapse video of moving cancer cells in a laboratory culture. It was produced in Japan by Tsutomu Tomita of Timelapse Vision, Inc. Tomita's "Cancer Dance: The Plasma Membrane in Normal and Transformed Cells" was recorded through an inverted microscope by a digital camera.

The "Public Outreach" award will be presented to Bin He, a graduate student at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, for his video, "Animation of Chromosome Alignment and the Spindle Assembly Checkpoint." The animation, made with Autodesk Maya and composed with Adobe After Effects, visualizes how each chromosome in a pair segregates during cell division, so that each of the two new "
