Here is a step-by-step guide that I made to help people export microscope images from ImageJ/FIJI and then import and alter colours/levels etc in Photoshop. The guide also shows you how to easily move from Photoshop to illustrator to make montage images etc for publication.

Here is a slide that I made and often use at the beginning of my talks to briefly explain what mitosis is. The images are taken from a live cell that we have labelled with fluorescent probes to highlight the DNA (red) and microtubules (green). Enjoy !Read More A brief introduction to Mitosis
Here is one of the images that we took using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope this week in the lab. It is a 3D image of a HeLa cell that has completely stuffed up mitosis (undergone mitotic catastrophe). It has separated whole chromosomes randomly into 2 daughter cells instead of separating the two identical chromatids in […]Read More Cell Image of the Week – Mitotic Catastrophe
Our favourite protein in the lab is Greatwall kinase. It was first discovered in 2004 to be critical for cell division in fruit flies (1,2) . The trail then went cold for a few years as to its exact function, but in 2009, while I was working as a post-doc in France, I was fortunate […]Read More A brief Intro to Greatwall Kinase…The King of Mitosis
