Wageningen Imaging and Spectroscopy Hub (WISH) - ALM and Molecular Imaging Node Wageningen
The WISH – ALM and Molecular Imaging Node in Wageningen joins the outstanding scientific and technical excellence of three participating expertise groups specialized in light microscopy, microspectroscopy, and magnetic resonance. This Node applies advanced imaging technologies to plant research within a multidisciplinary research environment of cell & developmental biologists, (bio-) physicists and biochemists. Advanced instrumentation has been developed for the particular purpose of studying photosynthesis in vivo with the use of ultrafast fluorescence at the level of individual cells and chloroplasts.
Specialties and expertise of the Node
Spectroscopic investigations of energy transfer within photosynthetic complexes; functional imaging of membrane associated protein complexes involved in plant signaling and photosynthesis; and the visualization of plant developmental processes like cell division.
