CAM is free to Cambridge alumni. Copies are available in the Department library or online here.

Science as art

Andrew Baker, graduate student in the Signal Transduction group, has won a competition for the best scientific image, judged on aesthetic merits. The competition was open to any student in the Graduate School of Biological, Medical and Veterinary Sciences, and was judged by Duncan Robinson, Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and Tim Hunt, joint winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. Andrew's image shows the cotyledon - the seed-leaf - of Arabidopsis.
