The RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology is pleased to publish the data for a set of developmentally-themed postcards with a distinctly Japanese feel. The data for the 16-card set is released under a Creative Commons license that permits non-commercial uses of the designs provided that RIKEN CDB is acknowledged as the original source.
The cards, which incorporate motifs from Japanese art and fashion into depictions of 16 organisms used in studies of animal development, were originally printed and distributed at scientific meetings sponsored by the CDB. The printed cards are no longer available, but we are happy to provide the data for our colleagues around the world to use and enjoy. The cards, designed for the CDB by Yukiko Fujiwara, can be downloaded individually, or compressed in a .zip file, below.
