...and an appendicularian in a pear tree...


In the spirit of the season, I give you the Christmas Oikopleura! No, he's not filled with holiday cheer, rather he's stuffed full of dsRed and nuclear localized GFP protein.... just like I plan to be stuffed full of pepperkake and aquavit over the next few weeks.


(and yes, GFP on a dsRed background should look yellow, but since red and yellow aren't Christmas colors I did a straight image overlay rather than combining the two images.)
