The Chick Embryo Model System

Cover legend

Artistic view of a chicken embryo, following three days of incubation. The mosaic was elaborated by Nelly Vandel in 1958 and it decorated the main entrance of the former Institute of Cellular and Molecular Embryology of the College de France and the CNRS in Nogent-sur-Marne, France.
