Image of the Month
Tie a Yellow Ribbon
This month, we have a large-scale mosaic confocal microscope image of a histological section of the retina of a seven month-old mouse. The image was taken two months after the administration of an AAV2-GFP vector; the yellow-green color shows the regions where the GFP gene was integrated and expressed. The image took first prize in the National Institutes of Health’s 2016 Combined Federal Campaign “Beauty of Science.”
