Posted by FocalPlane, on 29 September 2023Our featured image is called Dictyostelium Trees on Fire and was acquired by Peggy Paschke. The image shows Dictyostelium discoideum cells stably expressing the cAMP sensor Flamindo2. Cells were imaged as 5×5 tile scan for 5 hours with a Nikon AXR (488 nm excitation) using a 4x air objective. Shown is a cropped part of
Posted by FocalPlane, on 27 September 2023by Helena Jambor In biology, images document appearances or structures of animals, issues, or cells, and increasingly are a source of quantitative insights of biological processes. Many papers are published every single day with images (Lee, 2018).Not all of these images are truthful or insightful. Some images are manipulated to mislead audiences (Bik et al.,
