Help find me some cool pics for our office!
December 3, 2013 2:51 PM   Subscribe

My boss has mentioned some pictures of cells and - specifically - microbiomes he has seen which are super colorful and would be cool to blow up and put on our walls. My google search is failing, and I am only finding images that look like sour-patch gummy worms. Anyone know of good websites where we can buy cool, science-y pictures of microorganisms?

I wonder if you might find something interesting among our Cool Science Images. I don't know how easy it would be to get copies for printing, but it's got the citations right there, so you could certainly ask :)

I'm a big fan of electron microscope pictures. More here.

Not microbiomes, but definitely colorful with a large selection and decent resolutions.

Nikon's MicroscopyU has some nice images. Its small world competition has some pretty stuff too.

I don't know the source, but these happy grass cells are adorable.

Thanks sacrifix! ...I would love to know where the second link was intended to go to. It seems to just reroute back to this page.

Probably this. And while I was looking around just now I also found this but any time a website wants you to contact them for pricing information I get a bad taste in my mouth.
