When scientists get too honest
> I would love to see more science posts on Tumblr. I particularly liked, “The postdoc who did all the work has since left to start a bakery.”
Well scientists are still human after all.
The last one slayed me omg

The art in science
The top image in this trio presents a surprising perspective on Microtubules In Vitro. The striking Edvard Munch-like image was taken by Ian Newton.
Below, the colourful array of bacteria derived from a flower bed soil sample, illustrates the wide range of beautiful colony shapes produced by these organisms. The bacteria in the image, by David Widdick, are the source of many antibiotics.
The bottom image is Blue Wing by Tom Matheson. The photo was inspired by his research into the neuromechanical control of limb movements in insects. This subject, lit by oblique blue light, shows an intriguing pattern of dark pigmented patches and intricate wing venation of the adult fore-wing.
These are just three of the images in our smorgasbord of images. Vote for your favourite at: http://bbsrc2014.picturk.com/

Lymphoblastic leukemia in the blood of an 8-year-old dog. The dog’s owner had mentioned in passing at the annual visit that the dog was not finishing every one of its meals as well as before. We did some bloodwork as part of a well visit and our machine could not read the complete blood count. I did a manual smear and found vast numbers of lymphocytes (the purple cells) in every field of the smear; normally you would see 2 or 3 in each field.
Bloodwork revealed the following:
White blood cells: 496.1 (normal range 4.0 - 15.5)!!!!! with
Lymphocytes 481334 (normal 690-4500)
consistent with lymphoblastic leukemia. Chronic forms may be slow-growing, but acute forms can come on rapidly, resulting in severe clinical signs and rapid progression of this fatal disease.
