Micrograph of intact 50-day old Gossypium hirsutum cotton fibres immunolabelled with a hemicellulose-directed monoclonal antibody (green). Cellulose is stained with Calcofluor (blue). This image, taken by Tom Benians, was highly commended in the The Art of Science - BBSRC's inaugural Science Photo Competition
