Imaging the Genome: Cataloguing the Fundamental Processes of Life

The team of researchers, led by Dr Rafael Carazo Salas from the Department of Genetics, combined high-resolution 3D confocal microscopy and computer-automated analysis of the images to survey the fission yeast genome with respect to three key cellular processes simultaneously: cell shape, microtubule organisation and cell cycle progression. Microtubules are small, tube-like structures which help cells divide and give them their structure.

Event Report: Touching Atoms, Molecules, Nanostructures and Cells

18th International Microscopy Congress (IMC2014) in Prague: When the doors opened on Monday 8 of September to welcome all the delegates to the opening ceremony, the view into the auditorium indicated that this congress would be a very big one and so it was. I had never attended such an extensive and intensive microscopy congress in Europe before and I cannot remember ever having been so busy since starting in the business more than 12 years ago.

National Synchrotron Light Source II Achieves 'First Light'

The brightest synchrotron light source in the world has delivered its first x-ray beams. The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory achieved "first light" on October 23, 2014, when operators opened the shutter to begin commissioning the first experimental station (called a beamline), allowing powerful x-rays to travel to a phosphor detector and capture the facility's first photons. While considerable work remains to realize the full potential of the new facility, first light counts as an important step on the road to facility commissioning.
