Cover photo: The cover shows a portion of a collection of C. elegans strains in which a collection of plasmids encoding fluorescent markers for different sensory neuron subtypes has been introduced into a panel of mutants. Introducing large collections of transgenes into panels of mutant strains in order to screen for novel phenotypes is a powerful approach that has been streamlined by computer-assisted microinjection, as reported by Gilleland et al. in this issue.
