LIFE SCIENCE GENERAL / June 7, 2021
To explore the dynamics of living cells, live-cell imaging is one of the major techniques. It supports your study of the cell behavior towards external stimuli. The main challenge for live-cell imaging is to get high-quality images in a minimal time frame with reduced phototoxicity for living cells.
GENOMICS / May 25, 2021
In this article, Dr. Erika Zernickel explains how you can successfully combine target single-cell injection with microscopy. Single-cell analysis enables the reconstitution of information regarding the causes of genetic changes, and it can contribute to studies on the molecular basis of cell transformation and proliferation. _
For more than one year the world struggles with the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) caused by a single-stranded RNA pathogen SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The World Health Organization (WHO) categorized in March 2020 Covid-19 disease as a pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 can cause acute and chronic respiratory and central nervous system illnesses. How can researchers use genomic sequencing to get more insights into the deadly virus?
