A virtual slide of a sagittal section of a zebrafish, a commonly used vertebrate model organism. The 5 dpf embryo has been imaged at 1.6 nm pixel-1 resolution over an area of 1.5 x 0.6 mm2, yielding a total of 281 gigapixels. The thumbnail shows the cartilage in slateblue , the eye in sienna , the brain in forestgreen , the muscles in salmon , the liver in indianred , the intestine in darkkhaki , the pancreas in plum the pronephric duct in yellow , the olfactory pit in limegreen , and the yolk in turquoise .
