Food & bacteria in the ileum, SEM

Food and bacteria in the small intestine. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of food debris (yellow) and normal intestinal bacteria (purple) on villi (projections, red) in the ileum. The ileum is the final section of the small intestine, before it becomes the large intestine. A variety of bacteria populate the human digestive system. In the small intestine they help to digest food and prevent harmful disease-causing bacteria from proliferating. Rod-shaped bacteria are called bacilli. Magnification: x475 at 6x7cm size

Coloured TEM of a rubella (German measles) virus

Rubella virus. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a single rubella virus, the causative agent of German measles. It consists of a lipoprotein coat or capsid (yellow) and a core containing single-stranded genetic RNA material (pink). The virus diameter is about 60 nanometres. Rubella belongs to the togavirus group of viruses. German measles is spread in airborne droplets, and occurs commonly in children as a mild rash. Rubella is a risk to unborn babies if the mother contracts the disease in the first four months of pregnancy. Rubella vaccine is now routinely given to young babies, which provides lasting immunity.

Internet use, conceptual artwork

Internet usage. Conceptual artwork representing the use of the internet and electronic mail (e- mail), on a computer. The "@" symbol or "at" sign (top right corner) and rows of zeros and ones (binary digits, lower right) are seen. The "@" symbol is used in the addresses of e-mail users, a method whereby computer users can send & receive information over the internet. The compact discs, at lower left, could be used to store data (CD- RAM) or may contain information (CD-ROM) such as an electronic encyclopaedia. The mouse (bottom right corner) represents the pointing device of the same name, which is used to move an on-screen pointer on a monitor (centre)
