The transparent organism: EMBLEM and Carl Zeiss give labs a unique look at life

... which prevented scientists from looking deep into tissues in the past. The entire procedure is very fast and in a computer supported post-processing step, one or more stacks of images are assembled into a high-resolution film. Another advantage of SPIM is that the specimen is kept alive in a liquid-filled ...

Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells

...c stem cells are capable of forming any of the 220 tissues and cells in the human body and, in culture, are constantly trying to migrate down different developmental pathways. Maintaining stock cultures in their undifferentiated state is critical. The feeder cell dogma now can be overturned, says lead inves...

Carnegie Mellon scientists develop tool that uses MRI to visualize gene expression in living animals

...e expression in real-time. Because MRI images deep tissues non-invasively and at high resolution, investigators don't need to sacrifice animals and perform laborious and costly analysis. To trigger living cells into producing their own contrast agent, Ahrens gave them a gene that produces a form of ferritin...

New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines
