The light and electron microscopy facilities of the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology introduce a new puzzle game: every 3 months, a microscopic image depicting an everyday item will be published. If you know or can guess what the object is, you can participate in the game.
All answers that are sent in via the web form are collected until the end of the quarter. The correct entries will be entered into a prize draw with a small present for the winner.
For the image of the first puzzle game round starting in July 2012, Christian Liebig, head of the light microscopy facility, has picked something from the fridge. If you know what he put under the microscope, send in your answer until September 30th
