Viewing things on a molecular scale, in real time.

Pacific Biosciences has produced a $600 million dollar microscope that can view biological processes in real time on a molecular scale. No more shitty animations, we'll be able to see DNA structure for real.

  1. Wow - just learning about a little bit of this in my Biopsych course.

  2. Cool, though I wonder how this will work. I mean, biological processes can only be seen in a cell that it still alive and electron microscopy (the only kind of microscopy that can zoom in far enough) can only be used with dead cells.
    Ah well, great find! :)

  13. the money would be better investet if they put it in the economy... USA has 4 trillion debts...

  14. Hey you should check out two-photon excitation microscopy, it is sort of doing the same thing.

  15. I cannot wait to see this, should be fun. Always wanted to see what DNA would look like in real time.

  16. Still not enough to compare how much USA waste on the "war on terror"

    It's sad how far we could have come if the funding for research have gone to more useful programs.
