Cell Biology

Pollen grains are male germ cells of plants that produce seeds.  The naturally auto-fluorescent grains were simultaneously exposed to three beams using a spinning disc confocal microscope producing three separate monochrome images.  Each image was arbitrarily assigned a color before recombining, thus producing the shown picture.  X60
