Researchers who peruse the microscopic world of cells, viruses, and proteins often find themselves at the nexus of science and art. The Wellcome Trust is celebrating this convergence with a show of its Biomedical Image Awards 2001 at its Two10 Gallery in London. If you can't make it to London before the Growth & Form exhibit ends on 4 May, then check out the Flash version on the Web. A winning entry by Kate Nobes and Mark Shipman of The Wellcome Trust shows a cluster of sensory nerve cells under a confocal microscope. The cells' microtubules glow green and actin filaments glow red in the image, in which starlike growth cones tip the ends of long axons.
