Every year we give the Node readers the chance to choose their favourite images from a selection of great pictures taken by the students of the Woods Hole Embryology course. Last year you chose 4 beautiful images that featured in the cover of Development, and now is time to make your choice again!
Below are 4 great images from last year’s course. Vote in the poll at the end of this post to choose the image that you would like to see in the cover of Development! You can see a bigger version by clicking on the images.
Voting will close noon GMT on June 9th.
