Animation of a fertilised human egg cell undergoing its first cell division. Fertilisation occurs when a male sperm cell fuses with a female egg cell; each contributing half a genome to the new organism. After fertilisation; the combined genome begins to divide by mitosis. A spindle structure (brown) forms; with the chromosomes (pink) in a line in the centre. The chromosomes will separate into identical halves and be pulled to each side by the spindle; and the cell will then divide so that two identical cells are produced.
