Proper chromosome segregation depends on correct attachments between microtubules and kinetochores. Budding yeast have been thought to achieve these attachments with different kinetics than other eukaryotes. Now, deploying specialized data processing techniques to achieve super-resolution images, Marco et al. demonstrate that this tractable cell-cycle model system shares more similarities with plants and animals than previously thought.
