    One of the fundamental biological processes in life is the cell cycle leading from DNA replication to cell division. While it has been studied for decades and our knowledge has matured, sophisticated experimental approaches have rejuvenated the field. In addition, cell cycle regulators have emerged as cancer therapy targets. This collection showcases ground-breaking cell cycle papers and reviews, ranging from basic discoveries to clinical applications.
