The processes of life are naturally dynamic in space and time from the molecular to the organismal level. The rapid development of imaging methods across this full scale of biological organization has revolutionized our ability to directly visualize the inner workings of proteins, protein complexes, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms and ecosystems.
With the Symposium “Seeing is Believing – Imaging the Processes of Life” we aim to bring together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications that illustrate how imaging can answer biological questions. We will place emphasis on methods that are able to capture the dynamics of life and aim to span the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging of whole organisms.
