Every year the Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition shares mind-blowing images captured through microscopes.  Not only are the winning images beautiful, they offer a pleasant summary of novel research taking place in today’s life science research labs.

Below are a my favorites from the 2010 winning entries.  The entire gallery of winning entries and runners up can be seen here.
