‘Panoramic Light Sheet Microscopy’

Gopi SHAH: ‘Panoramic Light Sheet Microscopy’

Gopi SHAH: ‘Panoramic Light Sheet Microscopy’

The ever-increasing speed and resolution of modern microscopes make the storage and post-processing of images challenging. We developed a 4-lens light sheet microscope combined with real-time image-processing engine that projects the 3D image volume onto a 2D map, reducing the data generated as well as providing a panoramic view of the sample. In my talk, I will discuss our multi-dimensional imaging approach, integrating whole-embryo live imaging, genetic information and analysis of an ensemble of specimen to understand how large-scale tissue movements shape the early zebrafish embryo.

Imaging: interpreting the seen and discovering the unseen

Imaging: interpreting the seen and discovering the unseen

Horizon Magazine February 2015. From visualising microscopic cells to massive galaxies, imaging is a core tool for many disciplines, and it’s also the basis of a surge in recent technical developments – some of which are being pioneered in Cambridge. Today, we begin a month-long focus on research that is exploring far beyond what the eye can see, introduced here by Stella Panayotova, Stefanie Reichelt and Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb.

Using microscopy to systematically catalogue gene functions

Using microscopy to systematically catalogue gene functions

Classical genetics has typically focused on dissecting how genes or pathways control a given process within cells. However, many genes likely play roles in multiple processes, which are potentially linked to one another. Unravelling those multiple roles and links is a pressing challenge if we are to understand how healthy cells function normally as integrated systems and, conversely, how complex cellular pathologies arise in disease and how to fix them.

Under the Microscope series - IMAGES Wanted!

Do you have a stunning image or video connected with or resulting from your research? Perhaps something created by a new imaging technique, high speed photography or time-lapse camera? It can be anything from the nanoscale to the astronomical.

Nobel Prize for Chemistry for Super Resolution Microscopy

Nobel Prize for Chemistry for Super Resolution Microscopy

In October 8th 2014, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2014 to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy". For a long time optical microscopy was held back by a presumed limitation: that it would never obtain a better resolution than half the wavelength of light. Helped by fluorescent molecules the Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2014 ingeniously circumvented this limitation. Their ground-breaking work has brought optical microscopy into the nanodimension.

Image segmentation - isolating objects of interest in images:

Image segmentation - isolating objects of interest in images:

Image segmentation problems appear in areas such as image editing (separating foreground from background, merging multiple images), medical applications (separating gray and white matter, finding structures in medical images), and biological imaging (finding cells and nuclei, detecting cancerous cells).

Find the mitotic index

Find the mitotic index

At the CRUK CI, we use an automated high-content microscope to image thousands of cells and then determine the percentage of mitotic cells with the associated commercial software.
