Embryonic tranmission of Wolbachia

The cover image depicts maternal transmission of Wolbachia. Within the Drosophila female germ line, the intracellular proteobacteria Wolbachia (red) accumulates in the cell that will form the fruit fly egg and embryo and is thereby transmitted to the next host generation. Green indicates germ line, and blue indicates DNA (see Ferree et al).
