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).

The image is of a Pseudomonas syringae B728a strain that has a knock-out in the fleQ gene which is responsible for regulating the flagellar genes. This Pseudomonas strain also harbors a gfp reporter gene fused to the syfA promoter. The bacteria were adhered to 1m fluorescent microspheres and co-inoculated onto a filter. After a specific time the distance of bacterial migration was determined (red lines). The image was taken on the Zeiss AxioImager M2 epifluorescence microscope using the GFP filter and 100x magnification. Measurements was done using iVision software.
