A 5 nm tomographic slice from a vitreous section of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell. (M) is a Mitochondrion and (V) a vacuole. Scale bar, 100 nm. Upper Panel: A high-resolution density map of the averaged 80S ribosome constructed using the ribosomes seen in the background image. Lower Panel: A select area from the 80S ribosome Macromolecular Atlas displaying a putative polyribosome cluster.

This "Water bear" (Tardigrade) is an animal which is built only on a few hundred cells. It lives in moss and "awakes" when the moss gets wet. It feeds on moss by sucking the cells off. If the moss fells dry, Water Bears encapsule themselfes, if necessary for years to wait for the next rain.

Frontal view of beetle head. The antennae have been removed. The compound eyes are lateral. The beetle belong to the species Paussus favieri (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Paussini), a myrmecophilous ground beetle parasitic on ants. The picture is particularly dramatic since the antennal holes look like eyes of a monster.

Crystals of dyes adsorbed on the surface of a biopolymer after a process of water purification. One of the most common and undesirable contaminants in the wastewater are the dyes. They are highly visible, stable and difficult to biodegrade. For removal of such contaminants are commonly used adsorption techniques.
