Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have obtained the first high-resolution, three-dimensional images of a cell with a nucleus undergoing cell division. The observations, made using a powerful imaging technique in combination with a new method for slicing cell samples, indicate that one of the characteristic steps of mitosis is significantly different in some cells. During mitosis, two sets of chromosomes get paired up at the center of the cell's nucleus. Then...

British researchers have unveiled a high-resolution optical microscope that uses tiny glass beads to image objects just 50 nanometers in size. The invention is the highest-resolution microscope ever demonstrated, and shatters the record for the smallest object the eye can see while providing a direct view into the "nanoscopic" world. Until now, standard optical microscopes only displayed objects around one micrometer in size clearly. By combining an optical microscope with a transparent...
