Template Structure (IMAGE) University of Washington Caption Researchers took a section of a young skeleton (yellow box in left panel) and magnified it (middle). They next looked more closely at the interface between the organic template and the mineral shell (yellow box in middle panel) using an electron microscope (right). Results show the interface has complex physical structure and chemical composition that can help us understand the templating process.
