The prostate is a small and complicated structure that plays an important role in the male reproductive system. This image shows several angles of a mouse prostate gland, prepared and dyed so that the cellular structure of the whole organ can be seen and recorded. The 3D images created by this work will contribute to understanding of tissue development.
