Some superlative science-themed Christmas decorations at the MRC WIMM

This year, researchers at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine outdid themselves in their annual Christmas decorations contest, with some truly creative ideas on display, including a forest's worth of glove-based Christmas trees, a Christmas makeover for Charles Darwin, a stained glass window featuring an icosahedral virus, and an infection themed tree (and another made of coffee jars). Visit the  MRC WIMM blog to see the decorations in their full glory.
