Poster Frontiers in Bioimaging

 Bioimaging is one of the chief subjects of the collaboration between NIBB and EMBL. This meeting was held with the aim of exchanging information and discussing emerging and innovative technologies including chemical probes, microscopes with new concepts, and image data processing. 
 Dr. Stelzer (EMBL) reported on the Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM), which is a recently developed microscope that allows scientists to observe large-sized (up to a few millimeters) and even living specimens. Dr. Sedat (UCSF) talked about the advanced microscopic system “OMX”, the first practical implementation of structured illumination (SI) in which the grid is superimposed onto the sample to gain sharper images. Dr. Ellenberg talked about the genome-wide screening of mitosis-regulating genes called “MitoCheck” based on the mass image analysis of cultured cells combined with the disruption of genes with RNA interference. 
 Because of the high quality of the presentations and the lively discussions among the participants, this meeting was of significant importance for the field of bioimaging.
