Image of the month - August Two heads are better than one, it'll make you come undone
Yamini Ravichandran, a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Aurélien Roux (Biochemistry) created this video of a two headed morphogenetic defective Hydra expressing GFP-LifeAct, showing the apical surface and the supracellular actin cables running along the animal.

This volumetric rendering was done at the Photonic Bioimaging Center, using Imaris software on 3D data acquired on our SP8Dive Multiphoton Confocal Microscope.

Photonic Bioimaging TeamThe Photonic Bioimaging Center was founded in 2002 by the NCCR Frontiers in Genetics. It is a common platform of the Faculty of Sciences and iGE3. Under the auspices of the iGE3, it is mainly supported by the Section of Biology and the Biochemistry Department. The Center is open to the entire scientific and biomedical community of the Geneva academic landscape.

It is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art equipment and technology for light microscopy. Specialists offer advice and guidance for each step of your imaging project starting from experimental approach to data analysis.
