Microscopy Facilities
at the University of California, Berkeley

There are three core laboratories on campus that offer expertise, instruction, and instrumentation in optical microscopy for research.

The Biological Imaging Facility is a core microscope imaging lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
The BIF specializes in Widefield, Confocal, Deconvolution, Spinning Disk, and Super-Resolution fluorescence microscopy
(SIM, PALM, TIRF).

Past IOMs

2006–2018

Expression of proteins involved in petroleum degradation (cam A,B, C and D) from the CAM plasmid in E.coli. In the image, camC (camphor-5-monooxygenase) is fused to mcherry; camD (5-exo-hydroxycamphor dehydrogenase) is fused to gfp. This work is part of an ongoing project to understand how bacteria degrade petroleum hydrocarbons and to develop new bioremediation strategies based on these biological processes.
