Plants May Be Able To Control the Genetics of Their Microbial Symbionts

Each spore contains hundreds of nuclei. The image was generated using confocal microscopy. The bright spots within the spores represent nuclei labelled with fluorescent dye. Images are colour coded along z-axis for depth recognition, with white and red colours being closer to the observer while blue colours being the furthest. Each image is the result of approximately 300 z-stacks (0.35um intervals). Credit: University of Ottawa/ Microscope Laboratory (Ottawa-RDC, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada).
