The following protocols were used to acquire and manipulate the images found in this atlas.
Three different types of microscopy were used to generate the images in this atlas, and in certain cases differing methods of obtaining the images were performed on the same type of microscope. The microscopes used include a laser scanning confocal, a fluorescence, and a standard light. The light microscope used conventional brightfield microscopy as well as phase-contrast and differential interference contrast (DIC or Nomarski) microscopy. Each type of microscope and the proceedures for obtaining images from them are described in greater detail on the individual pages as linked above.
These microscopes may be found in the Beckman Institute's Imaging Technology Group Microscopy Suite. For further information on each scope, or for more information about the procedures used to generate the atlas, contact Sheela Konda.
