COVER Artist's cutaway view through a live cell and its nucleus, showing components of a signaling pathway labeled with quantum dots of different colors (spheres). The long fluorescence lifetimes of quantum dots (semiconductor nanocrystals) will enable visualization of signal transduction pathways in real time. See page 538. [Image: Darren Keogh]
