The winner in the photography category was Bryan Jones from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, for his photograph in which he captures a slice of the retina of a laboratory mouse. For clarity, the neurologist gave each layer of light-sensitive cells its own color, which makes the eye look like multi-layered colored candy.

A photograph of a mouse's retina, the "Cthulhu" cancer cell, a "cosmic network", a computer game Foldit and a video in which a living cell is broken down into its component parts, were the winners in a competition to find the best artistic work describing scientific phenomena or processes, run by Science magazine.
