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 CNR Biological Imaging Facility (This lab): Confocal, deconvolution, and widefield fluorescence microscopy, live-cell imaging, microtechnique, training in digital image processing and analysis. Located in 381 Koshland Hall
Molecular Imaging Center: Multi-photon laser scanning confocal microscopy, electrophysiology, live-cell imaging. Located in LSA and LKS.
The Golub Microscope Collection: Web site dedicated to Dr. Orville J. Golub's collection of antique microscopes from the 17th–20th Centuries. The collection is located in VLSB
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).
Localization of GFP tagged Symbiosis-associated Arabinogalactan Peptide 3 (SAP3) under control of its native promoter in a Medicago truncatula root nodule colonized by Sinorhizobium meliloti expressing mCherry. Plant cell walls were stained with calcofluor white. This image was acquired at the BIF using a Zeiss LSM710 confocal laser scanning microscope.
