Watch Living Cells in Motion

Watch Living Cells in motion, videos of living cells.

Video: Filopodia moving in HeLa cell

 Video: Outer surface of a cell in motion

Video: Chromosomes in motion during cell mitosis

The videos are captured with a Bessel beam plane illumination microscope invented at HHMI. Techniques such as these will enable seeing nanometer sized objects, leading to hyper-resolution microscopy.
