Gene expression images from ISS

The LMM has transferred some excellent images of plant roots on the ISS. Here is a white-light image showing a root tip growing on the surface of the agar medium. This image gives us precise location and morphology information. Below is a GFP gene expression image, showing the precise location of the cells within the root that are expressing this gene. The larger image at the bottom is a combined image, showing both the morphological location information as well as the gene expression data.
