Studying Blood Cell and Vessel Development in Zebrafish
Editor's Pics

Zebrafish are a useful model for studying the development of blood cells and blood vessels. This image shows blood cells (magenta) in blood vessels (yellow) on the yolk of an anesthetized, 2-day-old, transgenic zebrafish embryo, which is about the size of a grain of rice.

Northern Star Coral
Editor's Pics

Some corals are particularly light-sensitive, making them difficult to image. In this case, darkfield imaging has been used to reveal the non-autofluorescent coral tissue in the Northern Star coral, a species with no intrinsic fluorescence.
