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

Malamp: Reliquaries  >  Biological Specimens as Art
By Kyle Hill  || April 8, 2014 || DiscoverMagazine

These Frogs Are Nature’s Mistakes…And They Are Beautiful

Since 1996, visual artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée has been fascinated with the physical deformities of amphibians. As you can see, his interest goes beyond his extensive scientific research on the topic. In an ongoing art project entitled Malamp: Reliquaries, Ballengée uses the unique process of “clearing and staining” biological specimens to highlight the hidden beauty in terminally deformed frogs.

Bette Davis touches up her eyeliner on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). She created her own makeup for the part, explaining, “What I had in mind no professional makeup man would have dared to put on me… I felt Jane never washed her face, just added another layer of makeup each day.”
