stained fruit fly eggs

Artwork by Claire Thomas, associate professor of biology and of biochemistry and molecular biology and curator of the exhibit, titled “Egg Chamber Figurine.” In this false color fluorescent light micrograph, patches of fruit fly follicle cells, which create egg chambers where strings of eggs grow, are seen in three successively larger chambers surrounding three growing eggs. The eggs and other follicle cells are invisible because they were not stained.
