Tracking microtubules in plants with the Olympus TIRF microscope and TrackMate software.
Explosion of the senses by Giselle Cheung
This is the superior colliculus, a brain region where our senses (e.g. vision and hearing) come together so that we can make sense of the world. We use MADM (Mosaic Analysis with Double Markers) in mice to trace all cells produced by a single neural stem cell. This 3D reconstruction highlights the extent and diversity of brain development and the compelling beauty within.
One ant washes the other by Lukas Lindorfer
The video shows two ants cleaning each other from a fluorescently-labelled pathogen model. Acquired on an Olympus stereo microscope.
Once Upon a Time… Life by Michael Riedl
