About this book

In recent years, imaging has rapidly become a tremendously valuable approach in nearly every field of biological research. Finding the right method and optimizing it for data collection can be a daunting process, even for an established imaging laboratory. Imaging: A Laboratory Manual is the cornerstone of a new laboratory manual series, designed as an essential guide for investigators who need these visualization techniques. This first volume is meant as a general reference for all fields, and describes the theory and practice of a wide array of imaging methods. From the basic chapters on optics, equipment and labeling to detailed explanations of advanced, cutting-edge methods like PALM, STORM, light sheet and high speed microscopy, Imaging: A Laboratory Manual is a vital resource for the modern biology laboratory.

Media reviews

"Yuste managed to get renowned scientists and even Nobel Prize winners (including Roger Y. Tsien and Erwin Neher) to write the chapters to ensure that the latest findings were also incorporated into each of the subject areas [...] In summary, this manual provides an excellent overview of the broad subject of image processing in microscopy. Imaging: A Laboratory Manual is suitable both as a reference book for beginners and as a 'cookbook' for readers working in research."
