Results about: light sheet microscopy
This activity, developed in collaboration with BIST, will allow participants to learn how and why DNA is studied, and what genetic mutations are and how they relate to cancer.
Also, they will have the opportunity to use a reconstruction of a Light Sheet Microscope made of LEGO.
The Youth Mobile Festival (YoMo) Barcelona hosts a cutting-edge fluorescence microscope built with Lego blocks
IRB Barcelona is to participate in the first edition of YoMo Barcelona by giving a Lego fluorescence microscope workshop on March 1.
It is a unique and creative project that brings the latest 3D imaging technology to schools, high schools and universities.
Julien Colombelli, co-inventor of the microscope and Core Facility Manager of the Advanced Digital Microscopy Laboratory, will be coordinating the workshop.
The new microscopes allow the tracking of cell movement within an organism, observation of neuronal synapses, visualization of the spread of cancer, and in vivo monitoring of embryo development.
The development of the 3D microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, and light sheet microscopy (a kind of microscope that illuminates the sample with a sheet of light) pushes biology towards new horizons.
IRB Barcelona and the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) gather 420 experts in the 15th ELMI Meeting, an annual European microscopy congress held this year in Sitges from 19 till 22 May.
