  • Front: Scanning electron micrograph of chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO) following impalement on a nanofiber array.
  • Background: Optical microscope image of a transformed colony of CHO expressing green fluorescent protein from nanofiber delivered plasmids 22 days following impalement upon DNA modified nanofiber array.
  • This image has been assembled in Adobe Photoshop by overlaying an optical microscope photograph and scanning electron micrograph, which has been colorized and manipulated to display fake perspective.
