Cover legend

The cover image shows expression of Dendra2::H2B in the adult gonads of the C. elegans JBL1 strain (green). Autofluorescence from the intestinal granules is pseudocolored in red. Image was acquired on a light sheet fluorescence microscope. Insets: Photoconversion of one of the Dendra2::H2B-labeled pronuclei shortly after fertilization allows to distinguish maternal (red) and paternal (green) chromatin, here shown during the first embryonic mitosis. For further details, see article by Bolková and Lanctôt (pp. 5-12) in the current issue.
