I am happy to report that after a long search we have found a postdoc who will join the QSTORM team starting October 1. Learn more about Jianquan Xu here: Jianquan Xu.
So, kicking off the Winter lab notes… The goal in the Winter lab is to create quantum dots that can be turned on and off by light. To do this, we need a way to turn particles on and off. more »
July 29, 2011: (In our QSTORM meeting we wondered if we could use phalloidin as a label for actin) Hi Beth and Cally, Phalloidin is a poison that targets actin. People have attached fluorescent probes to it to visualize actin. more »
July 27, 2011: Thanks! Looking forward to discussing tomorrow — Beth
July 27, 2011: Hi Beth, Cally and I were looking at what Sanger has published since 2009, and we found a review article that might be interesting to discuss as well. I’ve attached it. -Julia
July 26, 2011: Hi Cally and Julia, I just read the Sanger paper carefully. Very cool. Let’s meet to discuss that. Please also do some research to find out who has cited that paper since it was published, and whether more »
July 26, 2011: Hey Beth, We don’t have new images to show you at our next QSTORM meeting because the fume hoods were down and our fish are not at the right age for processing. Do you still more »
Hi Peter and Andrew — Nice pictures! The single slice 60x image shows the banding pattern of actin and myosin very well. This is a great start. Let us know when you want more fish. We need a few days more »
Yesterday was spent taking images of zebrafish with varying levels of laser intensity and capturing techniques. Initially we began by placing the fish onto p35 dishes with a No. 1.5 cover-glass bottom. A 20x objective was then used simply to more »
July 22, 2011: I agree that talking about images in terms of zoom does not make sense. I guess I assumed that you meant a 63x objective. Glad to know that we are already getting maximum resolution. — Beth
