This year’s #ScientistAtWork contest — our second — garnered about 330 entries from around the world. We saw scientists treating disease in West Africa, engineering crops in Australia and tracking the habits of cave bacteria in central Europe. Winning entries were selected by Nature art editors on the basis of visual impact. Winners will receive a year’s personal subscription to Nature.
