These images, generated by soft X-ray tomography performed by Berkeley Lab scientists, show the algae at different stages of cell division. UCYN-A, the nitrogen-fixing entity now considered an organelle, is cyan; the algal nucleus is depicted in blue, mitochondria are green, and chloroplasts are lilac. A computer screen floating in front of a supercomputing facility with a virus and bacteria coming out of the top. A large root system connects the computer with dirt floor full of soil organisms. A wooden walkway over a marshy flat area with shallow water and visible vegetation. Set against a bright blue sky with clouds. Graphic collage of a scientist holding a beaker in front of a teal background. Microscope illustration A cartoon-like graphic showing multicolored microbes and viruses on a dark blue background. A searchlight tracks over the microbes, revealing a section of colorful DNA inside a bacterium. An illustration of a glowing orb of light near a shadowed forest floor, with small leaves illuminated by the orb A vial containing brightly colored shapes representing molecules sits on a beige surface next to empty blue vials A digital illustration showing red virus particles each with a geometrically shaped capsule, stalk, and leg-like appendages attached to the surface of a green bacterium. A digital illustration of an hourglass filled with pieces of virus capsules and DNA strands. The pieces at the top of the hourglass are purple, and they are flowing downward into viral pieces that are orange. Conceptual painting depicting celestial purple orbs of varying sizes connected with stretching strands. Animation giving a 360-degree view of the phycobilisome structure researchers helped reveal.
