Confocal micrograph showing Shigella bacteria invading the intestinal lining.

Confocal micrograph showing Shigella bacteria (pink) invading the intestinal lining. The bacteria infects the cells by high-jacking the cell's internal actin skeleton (green) to facilitate its entry into the cell and spread into adjoining cells, using polymerizing actin comet tails as several ca...

Bacteria biofilm

This confocal micrograph, taken as part of a synthetic biology project, shows Bacillus subtilis, a Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in soil. Distinct lineages of bacteria expressing different fluorescent proteins were initially mixed randomly on a petri dish. As the bac... Read More

Ancient rock art's colours come from microbes

A particular type of ancient rock art in Western Australia maintains its vivid colours because it is alive, researchers have found.

While some rock art fades in hundreds of years, the "Bradshaw art" remains colourful after at least 40,000 years.

Jack Pettigrew of the University of Queensla... Read More

Nipah virus virions, related to Hendra virus

This transmission electron micrograph (TEM) depicted a number of Nipah virus virions that had been isolated from a patient's cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimen.

Nipah virus is a member of the family Paramyxoviridae, and is related, but not identical to Hendra virus. Nipah virus was initially ... Read More

Endospore Stain Bacillus cereus

B. cereus was grown on urea agar for 6 days at 37 degrees C to induce spore formation.
The endospore stain was done using malachite green as the primary stain and safranin as counter the stain. Malachite green was applied to the smear and set over a steaming water bath for 10 min (stain was no... Read More

Petite Pictures: The 20 Microscopic Photo Competition Prizewinners

Microscopes have been around for some 400 years, and today they are even accessible via customized cell phones. The act of peering into a microscope of any power can open a whole world of life and beauty that exists right under (or in) our noses. And to capture that rare view for reproduction ca... Read More

Chemists fold DNA into Möbius strips

Möbius strips are special loops that only have one continuous side. Now we've built the smallest Möbius strips ever - out of DNA. Here you can see the nanometer-sized DNA loops, folded like origami.

The ability to create complex structures on the tiniest of scales is one of the great challeng... Read More
