Nabokov's Notebook

Nabokov's Notebook A blog about the science in art and the art in science.
"I discovered in nature the nonutilitarian delights that I sought in art. Both were a form of magic, both were a game of intricate enchantment and deception." -Vladimir Nabokov (Writer, Lepidopterist.)


Winners of the first annual Bio-Art competition held by the Federation of American Societies for American Biology (FASEB). The Scientist featured a slideshow of the winning entries:

Top: ”This micrograph shows cells called myoblasts attached to spherical microcarriers, which allow the growth of adult stem cells (green) that have been isolated from skeletal muscle.”

Douglas B. Cowan, Harvard Medical School

Bottom: ”A three-dimensionally woven biomaterial scaffold consisting of multiple layers of resorbable fiber bundles woven into a porous structure. The scaffold is seeded with cells in order to accelerate natural cartilage repair and growth.”
