FocalPlane features... microscopy education

Posted by , on 10 May 2024

The second webinar of our new series of FocalPlane features… focussed on microscopy education. We hosted fantastic talks from Jennifer Waters, CITE, Harvard Medical School and Robert Haase from ScaDS.AI, Leipzig University. Jennifer introduced Microtutor, a new interactive virtual light microscopy course that will be released soon. The course is free and can be completed

JCS-FocalPlane Training Grants

Posted by , on 1 May 2024

We are excited to launch our new JCS-FocalPlane Training Grants. Early-career researchers in cell biology can apply for grants of up to £1,000 to support their attendance at microscopy courses, including bioimage analysis courses. These training grants can be used to cover the registration fees, accommodation and/or travel costs and are designed to support those

We are delighted to launch the FocalPlane-elmi2024 image competition. Enter your favourite microscopy images for your chance to win £150 and see your image on the cover of Journal of Cell Science. Voting for the shortlisted images will begin the week before elmi2024 and continue through the conference, until we announce the winner on Friday

How to write a bug report

Posted by , on 3 April 2024

Imagine you try out a software tool for the analysis of your data and for some reason it is not working in the way you expected. Neither the user documentation, nor forums like or stack overflow can provide answers. Then it is likely that you either found a bug in the software tool or

Journal of Cell Science Special Issue: Cell and Tissue Polarity

Posted by , on 18 March 2024

The Journal of Cell Science Special Issue on Cell and Tissue Polarity is now complete. The original research in this Issue, guest edited by David Bryant, covers many aspects of cell polarity, including the roles of both the cytoskeleton and junctions in polarity establishment and maintenance, polarised membrane trafficking, cell division and collective cell migration.

Authors: Jennifer Zenker1,*, Julian Heng2 1Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University, Clayton, Australia 2Remotely Consulting, Perth, Australia *Corresponding author Non-mammalian systems have been invaluable for us to decipher evolutionarily-conserved processes, orthologous molecules and cellular phenomena underlying early embryo development. One fundamental discovery from the work on non-mammalian

Tracking in napari

Posted by , on 1 June 2023

In this blog post we are exploring cell tracking in napari. Two important processes in normal tissue development and disease are cell migration and proliferation. To gain a better understanding on these processes, tracking in time-lapse datasets is needed. By measuring track properties, like velocity and the total travelled distance, spatio-temporal relationships can be studied.
