Ring canal formation in the Drosophila male germline occurs via a midbody-like intermediate

Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
We use the Drosophila male germline to address questions of incomplete cytokinesis that results in the formation of ring canals, membrane-bound cytoskeletal structures that connect cells in a syncytium. We have employed a combination of imaging approaches and gained new insights into the origin of ring canals during spermatogenesis.
