The art in science
The top image in this trio presents a surprising perspective on Microtubules In Vitro. The striking Edvard Munch-like image was taken by Ian Newton.
Below, the colourful array of bacteria derived from a flower bed soil sample, illustrates the wide range of beautiful colony shapes produced by these organisms. The bacteria in the image, by David Widdick, are the source of many antibiotics.
The bottom image is Blue Wing by Tom Matheson. The photo was inspired by his research into the neuromechanical control of limb movements in insects. This subject, lit by oblique blue light, shows an intriguing pattern of dark pigmented patches and intricate wing venation of the adult fore-wing.
These are just three of the images in our smorgasbord of images. Vote for your favourite at: http://bbsrc2014.picturk.com/
