[updated 24/2] – New deadline: March 15
To celebrate the successful first half year of the Node, we’re running a competition.
Latin, Nodus – a knot
In general – a point of intersection
In developmental biology – an embryonic tissue that
patterns a developing embryo
All you have to do is send us an image (it can be, for example, a photo, drawing or microscopic image) related to:
(a) developmental biology; and
(b) some sort of intersection.
Make sure to include a brief description of the image, and only send in your own work.
Think about it carefully, and think out of the box.
Here are a few ideas to get you started….
• Two developmental biologists in a knot (well – it’s an intersection of sorts…)
• The intersection of two points in development
• The intersection of ideas of developmental significance
Email your image to email@example.com before February 28 March 15 (new deadline!), noon GMT
In March, we will post the top 3 images on the Node, and then everyone will be able to vote for their favourite. Don’t worry if you want to stay anonymous – we don’t have to put your name up on display – just the picture that you send us!
The winner will get to commission their own TipArt work, worth $50 (US dollars), to prominently display in their lab or at home. TipArt is a website celebrating creativity at the lab bench with artwork made of pipette tips.
