Bio 200, 2007


This site is for those curious about eggs, embryos, cells and tissues.
How does an egg become a multicellular embryo, rich in cell types and extracellular matrices? Here you can watch cells squirm,crawl,
divide, and differentiate--and celebrate life at the cellular level!

10/09: More success in photomicroscopy contests: Haruka Fujimaki (MHC '10) won 9th place in the 2009 Olympus Bioscapes Photomicroscopy competition for her image of three Atlantic Salmon larvae, and I earned an Honorable Mention for a picture entitled "Inkjet Squid".

These four images were honored by the 2008 MBL Photomicrography contest and the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition 2008
