Subgroup Q: Next Generation Correlative Microscopy: Biological Applications and Emerging Techniques

Saturday, December 8, 1:30 pm-5:30 pm
Room: 31B

Organizers: Ori Avinoam, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel; and Yannick Schwab, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg Germany

Gaining a molecular level understanding of biological processes depends on developing the capability to visualize the molecules involved relative to their location within the cell at high resolution. However, obtaining such high-resolution information on dynamic processes in situ often require the application of more than one imaging technology to the exact same substrate by correlative microscopy. At the cross-road of multidisciplinary approaches, correlative microscopy brings together biologists, image analysts and engineers, leading to powerful workflows that are applied to an ever-increasing number of biological questions and models. This session will highlight the most recent advances in correlative microscopy and their application to unravel cellular organization and the molecular function of protein machineries in their subcellular context.
