Winning image: six zebrafish

Posted by , on 29 May 2012

Earlier this month, you voted for your favourite image from the International Course on Developmental Biology.

The winner, exactly 100 votes ahead of number 2, was this zebrafish embryo image:

The image shows six Sox10-GFP transgenic embryos, in which GFP and DAPI fluorescence are merged. The picture was taken by Mariana Herrera Cruz (Instituto de Biotecnología, UNAM, Mexico); the following people also contributed to prepare the sample: Juan Pablo Fernández (INSIBIO (CONICET-UNT), Argentina), Miguel Angel Mendoza (Instituto de Neurobiología, UNAM, Mexico), Paulette Fernández (UNAM, Mexico) and German Sabio (Leloir Institute, Argentina); all of them were students at the International Course on Developmental Biology, UNAB, Quintay-Chile, January 2012.

The zebrafish will appear on the cover of Development in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for that!

And get ready for the next round of images from Woods Hole, which will be up later this week.
