#DidYouKnow? Rat embryos are a great model organism for studying vision development because retinal development continues postnatally.

#VIDEO Here we watch 10 developing embryos of Volvox rousseletii, a polyphyletic genus of chlorophyte green algae. This specimen consists of ~5000 cells arranged in a monolayer at the surface of the transparent sphere. At the end of its embryogenesis, each embryo goes through the process of "inversion," where they turn themselves inside out.

Who else spotted the cameo from some Olympus microscopes in Hank Pym's lab in @marvelstudios' #AntManAndTheWasp? Check out some of these stunning images that, just like Ant-Man, are “Not Actual Size”! #olympus #microscopy #microscope #micro #microscopic #microscopes #photooftheday #photomicrograph #🔬#antmanandthewasp #MarvelCinematicUniverse #MarvelStudios
Neurospora crassa, a type of bread mold, is a common model organism because they are easy to grow and due to their haploid life cycle that produces recessive traits in offspring.

Purple = Astrocytes
Green = vascular endothelial cells (blood vessels). ——————————————————————————— The circular object on the left side is the optic nerve. Vessels grow into the retina from the optic nerve hole to the Ora serrata (see last picture for diagram). Astrocytes lead out in front of the vessels to provide a structure for growth but their main job is to hold the blood retina barrier tight. You can see the fingerlike projections wrapping around the vessels. Astrocytes are also a target of investigation in the retina because they may provide the necessities needed for vessel growth. .........................................................
**Remember that if you can stop vessel growth you could possibly stop tumor growth. In brain and eye cancers Astrocytes are an important focus for cancer research.
