Modified SIM Makes Movies of Cell Processes
ASHBURN, Va., Aug. 27, 2015 — Variations on structured illumination microscopy (SIM) provide a way to watch dynamic biological processes inside living cells with unprecedented clarity.
"These methods set a new standard for how far you can push the speed and noninvasiveness of superresolution imaging," said Nobel laureate Dr. Eric Betzig. "This will bring superresolution to live-cell imaging for real."
A group leader at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus, Betzig was one of three...
