'Dark cells' of living retina imaged for the first time

...liams' team was the first to image individual photoreceptor cells in the living eye, using a technique called adaptive optics, which was borrowed from astronomers trying to get clearer images of stars. To image the dark cells behind the photoreceptors, however, Williams employed adaptive optics with a new method...

3 sequencing companies join 1000 Genomes Project

... this application of the new sequencing technologies is like building bigger telescopes," said NHGRI Director Francis S.
