The London Centre for Nanotechnology uses Avizo Software to reveal structure of human chromosomes and nucleus in 3D

Prof. Ian Robinson, Dr. Bo Chen, London Centre for Nechnology, UCL and Tongji University

A team led by London Centre for Nanotechnology researchers, Prof. Ian Robinson and Dr. Bo Chen (now a professor at the Tongji University, Shanghai) used newly-developed serial block-face scanning electron microscopy (SBFSEM) and Thermo Scientific™ Avizo® Software, one dominant tool in 3D reconstructed image processing, to reveal the spatial structure of human chromosomes and nucleus quantitatively at high resolution of approximately 50 nm in three dimensions.
