Artwork by Colleen Mangold, postdoctoral scholar in biochemistry and molecular biology, and Joāo Araújo, postdoctoral scholar in entomology, titled “Zombie Ant SEM.” This digitally colored scanning electron micrograph shows tendrils of a fungus (gray), which infects ants and controls the ants’ behavior to the fungus’s benefit, growing among the muscles of the “zombie” ant’s head (brown).
