The Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition honors the world’s most extraordinary microscope images of life science subjects captured through light microscopes, using any magnification, any illumination technique and any brand of equipment. The thousands of images that people have shared with the competition over the years reflect some of the most exciting work going on in research today, work that can help shed light on the living universe and ultimately save lives. We look at BioScapes and these beautiful images as sources of education and inspiration to us and the world. via Olympus BioScapes
