Correlative Imaging of Engineered Biological Materials

Behzad Rad, Peter Ercius, Yasuo Yoshikuni, Emma Xu

Advances in microscopy and analytical techniques have enabled visualization of the dynamic processes of biological molecules in vivo and in vitro. Methods including super resolution microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy and synchrotron X-ray techniques can watch these processes in real time, at nanometer length scales. Visualization of biological molecules will play an essential role in the understanding of nanoscale processes, allowing for the design and engineering of renewable biological materials based on such molecules. This symposium will bring together researchers involved in cross-disciplinary work taking place at the Molecular Foundry and beyond to showcase cutting edge correlative imaging capabilities and foster collaboration and new directions.
