Ovarian cells

Found at the "Picture Show" at Cell:
The Drosophila ovary is an excellent model system for studies of organogenesis. Here the whole Drosophila ovary is spread out on a slide. Germline and somatic stem cells are at the outside tip of each ovariole strand while the mature eggs are in the center.

  1. Cool! Looks like some of that groovy old black-light art from the '70s!

  2. The one as 10:00 o'clock looks like Marge Simpson!
