#REPOST This diatom is from the seas of western Antarctica. The center part of the cell, where those spines are protruding? Just 40 microns wide!

Did you know? The same pigment responsible for the bold red colorization of roses turns cornflower plants a vibrant shade of blue once bloomed. Darkfield illumination captured these cornflower plant seeds.

Here we see the innervation of a Drosophila crop, the food storage sack. The tissue comes from a fly line expressing a GFP-tagged endogenous muscle protein (green) and was stained with an antibody that recognizes epitopes in neural cells (red) and with the nuclear marker DAPI (blue).

#REPOST Here you can see the origin of hematopoietic stem #cells, the type that is responsible for all the blood cells found in an organism. In the case of this image, that organism is a mouse embryo.

#REPOST This biofilm consists of a bacterium known as Clostridium thermocellum. In recent years, this strain has had increased research interest due to its ability to convert biomass into a usable energy source.

Up close and personal with a centric diatom!

I have shared several pictures and videos of diatoms from marine environments, but I thought today I would share a very close frame. Here are two versions of the same picture, but one is inverted (blue). Take a look at the beautiful pore patterns on this  Coscinodiscus.

Diatoms have frustules that are composed of a special biosilica with pores. These pores can sometimes be layered and vary in size. Ultimately, the frustules are a great example of biostructures that aid the phytoplankton in light-harvesting for photosynthesis.

#FACT No dye was used to produce this micrograph of the sebaceous glands in a rat ear! C.A.R.S spectromicroscopy is a dye-free imaging method that enables multiple photons to address vibration signatures of their molecules, with less risk of harming the specimen.

#REPOST Despite often appearing as benign, adenomas can still pose serious health risks. One reason is due to their tendency to appear in many areas of the body, including the colon, liver, and adrenal glands.
