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 image shows OsCIPK23 interaction with OsCBL1 in the bimolecular fluorescence complementation  (BiFC) assay in Arabidopsis protoplast. Protoplasts were transfected with expression vectors encoding OsCIPK23-nVenus and OsCBL1-cCFP. The Co-expression of OsCIPK23-nVenus and OsCBL1-cCFP produced a green fluorescent signal in the plasma membrane, indicating that OsCIPK23 can interact with OsCBL1 in the plasma membrane in plant cells.

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