How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Optical mesoscale imaging is a rapidly developing field that allows the visualization of larger samples than is possible with standard light microscopy, and fills a gap between cell and organism resolution. It spans from advanced fluorescence imaging of micrometric cell clusters to centimeter-size complete organisms. However, with larger volume spe...

Background/aims: The role of podocytes is well conserved across species from drosophila to teleosts, and mammals. Identifying the molecular markers that actively maintain the integrity of the podocyte will enable a greater understanding of the changes that lead to damage. Methods: We generated transgenic zebrafish, expressing fluorescent reporte...
Article

Conventional standing-wave (SW) fluorescence microscopy uses a single wavelength to excite fluorescence from the specimen, which is normally placed in contact with a first surface reflector. The resulting excitation SW creates a pattern of illumination with anti-nodal maxima at multiple evenly-spaced planes perpendicular to the optical axis of the...

Chapter
Learning and processing complex 3D structures can be challenging for students, particularly if relying on 2D images or if there is limited access to the study material. This applies to many fields including anatomy, where students report difficulty visualising complex structures such as the nervous system. We aimed to address this by creating a rea...
