Programmed cell death. Comparison of a fluorescent light micrograph (top) and transmission electron micrograph (TEM, bottom) of programmed cell death (apoptosis). This is a normal part of a cell life cycle. Part of the process is the fragmentation of the DNA (the cell's genetic material). This is the process seen here, as the green fluorescent labels (top) and the dark areas (bottom).
