Cells of a human breast cancer tumor that contain DNA (blue) can be seen in this false-color fluorescent-light micrograph—a photograph taken through a microscope— by Emily Bell, associate research professor of biochemistry and molecular biology. The nuclei of these cells have been stained in three colors (green, red, cyan) to reveal variation in factors that influence cell behavior. This micrograph was displayed as part of a collection of science-related artwork at a conference at Penn State about art in science communication—organized by Bell—and later at Webster’s Bookstore Café in downtown State College.
