Friday beautiful science

Today's Friday Beautiful Science comes from the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute. They're genetically engineering mosquitoes, with the hopes of making a malaria resistant mosquito. See more pictures here.

Digg!

It is beautiful, but until my brain clicked and I realised it was two mosquito larvae - Anopheles, I think, since they're on the surface - All I could think was "Isn't that a picture of Nessie?"
