  • Bone connective tissues...

    Bone connective tissues...
    Rudolph Virchow's many discoveries include finding cells in bone and connective tissue and describing substances such as myelin.
  • Mitosis

    Walther Flemming was a pioneer of cytogenetics, a field of science that analyses structures and processes in the Cell nucleus under a microscope. He was the first person to conduct a systematic study of chromosomes during division and called this process mitosis.
