Part of the “Principles and Practice” series, the 472-page book Imaging Cellular and Molecular Biological Functions presents essays by experts in the field for scientists and students who are interested in all aspects of imaging, including development and applications. Chapters address areas such as understanding the digital image recorded through a microscope, quantitative biological image analysis, the open microscopy environment, the design and function of a light-microscopy facility, quantitative colocalization imaging, quantitative FRET microscopy of live cells, and fluorescence photobleaching and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. Among other topics considered are imaging the dynamics of protein signaling, and computer-assisted systems for dynamic 3-D reconstruction and motion analysis of living cells. Spencer L.
