The Tree of Life by The Wellcome Trust

Explore the evolutionary links between living things with the Wellcome Trust's Tree of Life, developed as part of our Darwin 200 activities, which celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. This six-minute Tree of Life video also appeared on the BBC One programme 'Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life' narrated by David Attenborough. In addition to the video, an interactive version of the 'Tree of Life' here (http://www.wellcometreeoflife.org) has been created to allow you to explore evolutionary links even further.

Time lapse videomicrography of the life cycle of Dictostelium by Arjumond Khan and Benjamin Woodhouse, Western Connecticut State University

Distinct stages of Dictyostelium discoideum life cycle can be seen. As the video starts there is a wave of bacterial growth across the agar. From the implantation site of the spores, you can see the myxamoeba migrating out consuming the E.coli. As the E.coli is consumed you can see a clearing in the agar after which the myxamoeba using chemical signaling form multicellular slugs. The slugs can be seen migrating across the field of view, with the formation of a sorocarp in the upper right hand conner of the screen, indicating the end of the life cycle. Dictyostelium agar was liquified and allowed to solidify inside a Sykes-Moore chamber. E.coli was innoculated onto the agar followed by the implantation of Dictyostelium spores. The Sykes-Moore chamber was assembled and placed under time-lapse videomicrography for three days.
