THE CELL NUCLEI OF THE ADULT C. ELEGANS
7 images, uncompressed TIFF files

Adult worms were fixed by high pressure freezing. Samples were cryo-substituted and embedded in Lowicryl hm20. Ultrathin sections (70-80nm) were cut, counterstained with uranyl acetate and lead citrate and imaged at the transmission electron microscope (TEM). The selection of images highlights the diversity of nuclear architecture and chromatin texture in vivo.
