Cellules d’une feuille d’Arabette des dames reconstruite avec la technique "serial block face Imaging"

3D reconstruction of cells in a leaf of thale cress (arabidopsis thaliana), produced using the serial block face imaging technique. A total of 200 images (32 microns x 32 microns x 50 nm) were acquired using a scanning electron microscope equipped with a 3view ultramicrotome. The organelles are segmented, revealing the nucleus (in blue), the chloroplast (green), the endoplasmic reticulum (yellow) and a mitochondrion (red).

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
