+ - Virtual Nanoscopy allows Scientists to Capture Ultra-large High-res Cell Map->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "Researchers have managed to generate ultra-large high resolution election microscopic maps of cells by developing new tools that can combine thousands of images taken from an electron microscope thus enabling them to view a cell in its entirety. Use of electron microscopes reveals intricate structures of cells but, with a limitation that only a tiny portion of the cell is captured which misses out the bigger picture. If low-res images are captured to view a greater part of the biological structure intricate details are missed out. Team of scientists over at Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands have come up with a technique called "virtual nanoscopy" that enabled them to ultrastructurally map regions of cells and tissue as large as 1 mm2 at nanometer resolution."
