The winners of Nikon’s Small World in Motion 2018 Competition have just been announced, and overall first place has gone to a stunning developmental biology SPIM movie.
Watch Elizabeth Haynes and Jiaye “Henry” He’s “Zebrafish embryo growing its elaborate sensory nervous system (visualized over 16 hours of development)“, and marvel!
Developmental biology also made it to the 2018 competition’s ‘Honorable Mentions’ . Here’s Tessa Montague’s “Xenopus laevis (African clawed frog) egg recently fertilized by sperm (sped up ~10x)”
I’ll also claim Guray Dere’s “Stinkbug (shieldbug) eggs hatching” as realtime developmental biology!
Developmental biology also took the crown in previous years:

Daniel von Wangenheim
2014 1st place

2013 1st place
2011 1st place
