synchronous cell population
A culture of cells that all divide in synchrony. Particularly useful for certain studies of the cell cycle, cells can be made synchronous by depriving them of essential molecules, which are then restored. Synchronization breaks down after a few cycles, however, as individual cells have unique division rates.
