Scientists Engineer Human Cells With Squid-like Transparency

The black and white phase microscope image above helped UCI researchers identify where the squid reflectin protein nanostructures were present in human cells (dark regions, with some indicated by white arrows). The panel in color shows the associated pathlength for light traveling through a given area (red corresponds to longer pathlengths and blue corresponds to shorter pathlengths).
