This northern sea nettle is part of the jellyfish exhibition added to the SeaLife aquarium in Timmendorfer, Germany, earlier this year. Northern sea nettles, or chrysaora melanaster, are commonly found in the waters of the North Pacific.

"We took a rat apart and rebuilt it as a jellyfish." Supplemental interview on artificial jellyfish by Ed Yong. Scientist are creating new species to test drug companies heart drug effects. Humans playing with nature for money. How can you claim you've created something and patented it when the material you already started with was never yours to begin with?

Fixed Neuron    A multi-wavelength, three dimensional, wide-field immunofluorescence image of a fixed neuron. The projection was generated using an extended depth of field algorithm. Cell body labeled for tubulin is shown in blue, F-actin in green, and presynaptic protein in Red. Specimen courtesy of Natalie Dowell-Mesfin BMS-PhD student.
