Taubman Tech Talk: Microscopy

April 9, 2019

Taubman Tech Talk:  Microscopy:  You can observe a lot by just watching! Microscopes use optics to reveal invisible levels of biological detail.

It is now routinely possible to image the motion and activity of molecules in living cells or tissues at sub-second frame rates and sub-200 nanometer resolution. Increasingly, microscopes can also be used to precisely manipulate a protein’s activity or sub-cellular localization. Join us for this enlightening presentation by Aaron Taylor, PhD,…
