Microscopic Montage of Plant Root Tissue

This dataset represents 3 modalities of widefield microscopic imaging (clockwise): darkfield, incident light fluorescence, phase contrast, and incident light fluorescence at an alternative wavelength. Each dataset is constructed of many individual fields of view stitched together to form a montage of the entire tissue section. The inset shows the level of detail in the original image, which measures 72 inches square.
