William Sullivan, professor of molecular, cell, and developmental biology, is the main author of a paper appearing this week in the journal Science. Sullivan and graduate student Uyen Tram are the authors of "Role of delayed nuclear envelope breakdown and mitosis in Wolbachia-induced cytoplasmic incompatibility," published in the May 10 issue. This research is also the subject of an article by Carl Zimmer in the same issue.
