Mouse small intestine. Two goblet cells excreting mucous are visible between epithelial cells lining the surface of the small intestine. Hair like structures on epithelial cells are called microvilli.
Bacteriophage isolated from soil. Phages are abundant in nature and survival depends on the infective interaction with the bacterial host also present in the soil microbial community.
Mouse skeletal muscle. Longitudinal section showing a dark z-line to which thin actin filaments are bound. The unit between two z-lines is called a sarcomere.
Cross-section through the gut of Daphnia, a small planktonic crustacean used to study the uptake of nanoparticles. Visible are the microvilli on the surface of epithelial cells lining the gut. By Piper MacDonald (Engineering ’23).
