Here at the BroadMinded Blog, we polled the Broad community for their best holiday-themed scientific imagery — and we got some wonderful responses. We'll be taking a break until the new year, but in the meantime, enjoy these gorgeous biological images sure to keep you in the holiday spirit. Check back each day for a new entry. See you in 2011!

The image on the right, contributed by Rakesh Karmacharya, features a neuronal culture derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells. Neurons are in green, glial cells are in red and the blue stain shows cell nuclei.

With this image, Rakesh won second place in the Harvard Stem Cell Institute Imaging Contest. Congratulations, Rakesh!
