Electron Microscope Images
from the 2011 Embryology Summer Course
at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts

Every year, some of the coolest images taken during the course compete to be on the cover of an issue of the scientific journal Development

The winner was: [1] The ventral surface of a skate (genus Raja) treated with alcian blue (which stains cartilage) and alizarin red (which stains bone). The squiggly lines surrounding the face are ampullary canals, which act as an electro-sensory system.  Taken by David Gold, Lynn Kee and Meghan Morrissey and chosen by readers of the Node
