Janelia researchers speed up image-processing time and get sharper microscopy images by employing techniques used by astonomers and ophthalmologists.
Betzig will discuss historical connections between astronomy and microscopy on Dec. 12.
Janelia researchers create a new microscope that uses a thin sheet of light to reveal the dynamic inner life of cells.
A corrective strategy used by astronomers to sharpen images of celestial bodies can now help scientists see with more depth and clarity into the living brain of a mouse.
Janelia scientists have borrowed a technique from the field of astronomy to overcome biology’s equivalent of the twinkling of stars and the shimmering mirages in desert landscapes.
New technique images cellular proteins with near-molecular resolution.
Physicist and engineer Eric Betzig will bring hands-on experience in designing advanced microscopy tools to Janelia.
