T-lymphocyte with HIV Virus activity seen with the Transmission Electron Microscope

Smallpox (Variola) virus particles: each particle consists of genetic material (DNA - red) enclosed by a protein capsid (yellow)

As pretty as a picture (but a lot more deadly): Killer diseases as you've never seen them before

Stop Superbugs Naturally - Looking uncannily like a collection of sushi, in fact this is a closeup of Smallpox viruses. The virus consists of genetic material (red), DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), enclosed by a protein capsid (coat, yellow)

The mitochondria is like the digestive system of the cell, it process nutrients and creates energy for the cell. It also contains most chemical reactions inside of it.

Transmission Electron Microscope(TEM) photo of the mitochondria,within the cell. Mitochondria are the power stations of the cell and have their OWN DNA! AND, unlike our normal cell genes, the mitochondria and their DNA come from the mother.

Cell infected with herpes virus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) particles (pink) being released from a host cell. This virus infects epithelial cells around the mouth, causing fluid-filled blisters known as cold sores. There is no known cure for herpes infection and the virus remains in the body for life.

Sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body, running from the top of the leg to the back of the foot

The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body, running from the top of the leg to the back of the foot. Of particular interest to me as mine frequently has hissyfits!

Sea water under the microscope

Sea water under the microscope.if this isn't one of the scariest/coolest things, I don't know what is.

Neuronal Signals in Inflammation and Cancer | Neuronal signals in Inflammation and cancer can have positive and negative results based on complex signaling between many different types of cells

Newly discovered white blood cell conversations in chronic inflammation tell cells to stay and continue to produce inflammation rather then tamping it down

Herpes Virus seen with the Transmission Electron Microscope

Herpes: a thin section of herpes viruses on the surface of a cell. Three viruses already started to penetrate the cell. Another virus is located in the intercellular space, it is cut only on the side, so the DNA (red at the others) cannot be seen.

Virus particles (orange) migrating from the host cell's nucleus (Nature) Amazing! Wish it looked so pretty on my face.
