BMCDBer Rebecca Beer Gets 2nd in Aquaneering 2013 Art of Science Photomicrography Calendar Contest

Description of contest: 2013 Art of Science Photomicrography Calendar Contest

Aquaneering Inc.
Images depicting studies with zebrafish, xenopus, or other aquatic species were judged on both technical execution and artistic rendition by an outside panel of both science and art professionals. The three winning photos will be featured on Aquaneering’s 2013 calendar, which will be distributed in the January issues of ALN and Zebrafish Magazines. Aquaneering builds high quality aquatic environments for laboratory animals, including zebrafish and xenopus.

The earliest germ cells in the zebrafish ovary contain a population of germline stem cells. In this double transgenic adult zebrafish ovary imaged via fluorescent confocal microscopy, the ziwi promoter drives expression of mCherry in all germ cells (red) including early stage germ cells, while the vasa promoter drives expression of eGFP only in later stage oocytes (green), and DNA has been stained with DAPI (blue).
