    • MWV Episode 74 - David Bhella - Electron-cryomicroscopy

      12:35

      from microbeworld / Added

      Dr. David Bhella studies the structural components of viruses using the techniques of electron-cryomicroscopy and image analysis. In addition to his research, David participates with the Glasgow Science Centre in public outreach to help teach students the processes behind his science. Due to his work, David received the 2013 Peter Wildy Prize for Microbiology Education. David's acceptance speech detailed his work with students as well as the stunning images he has produced through his work in electron-cryomicroscopy in particular a project he did with artist Murray Robertson called Molecular Machines which features animated 3D images from virus research. On this episode, Vincent Racaniello talks with David about the Wildy Prize, his work with electron-cryomicroscopy, public outreach and his passion for combining science and art.

          What if we can see and hear what plants and microorganisms “talk about” ? what if we can pick up their whispers - signals generated as the response to stimuli coming from the environment and make them audio - visual? By using latest sensory technologies, we explore how local flora and fauna reacts to various outputs from their immediate environment and through visuals generated from real time data of their reactions we will give them a voice! The world is a place full of beautiful nature, quite often that nature goes amiss in the urban environments. But everywhere there is myriad of colors and scents of trees, flowers, bushes and various creatures which live in the water - all are an eye candy and almost a total sensory experience. However what we also would like to know and show is what is going on the nano-level in those beautiful living entities? Or in another world we would like to add to the outer beauty of a city nature and make visible that, which is normally invisible, and thus make the experience of nature even deeper. Plants, bacteria and millions of other living entities surrounds us all the time and are vital to our well being. However they exist in such a mode of being that not only many of their behaviour escape human perception, but their presence all together. “Organic Cinema” tackles the latest scientific findings on intelligence of plants and real time environmental data manifestation. The installation consist of a physical wetlab setup with bespoked electronics (action potential amplifiers, microscope etc) giving a source of the audio-visual projections, where viewers can experience invisible vital signals rendered and enlarged of by these electronics. “Organic Cinema v 1.1” is a very first attempt to look deeper into invisible whisper of what nature can tell us and about an attempt to translate that to something which we can interpret, understand and hopefully to which we can respond. It is a beginning of research and creative journey by WorldWilderLab - a collaboration of three artists: Ivan Henriques, Kasia Molga and Erik Overmeire. Many more things are to come....

              Nanolive is a disruptive world exclusive technology that enables to discover the inside of a living cell in 3D. A comprehensive representation of a cell’s activity allows the user to experience the living cell in a completely new way. Since the cell is the basis of all life on earth, we do expect this to be a major milestone in the history of Microscopy, Education, Biology, Labs and Industry.

                aDiatomea is an artificial life system that uses various methods and notions of a-life research. The basic principle of aDiatomea is that every aspect of it is entirely mathematically generated and thus it is not created purposefully as an art piece but as a complex system that takes a life of its own. These artificial organisms are based on actual unicellular organisms known as Diatoms. These beautiful microscopic creatures are constructed using the superformula, an equation that can reproduce organic forms. Granular sound is injected in these organisms, acting as their life-force, while they interact with each other and their environment. Award winning motion graphics designer MRK has kindly allowed me to add my sound to his clip, check out his other amazing works at https://vimeo.com/mrkism

                    8 frame per second movie conversion from stacked TIFF file capture from a SPOT RT3 Color camera in monochrome mode on a Zeiss Invertoskop 40C inverted microscope with 5x objective and green dichroic filter. These embryos were 2 days old and are in the pluteus larva stage. These bilaterally symmetrical zooplankton move via cillia and feed on single celled organisms until the metamorphose into the radially symmetrical form later on. At the pluteus larva stage they have no exoskeleton, only an internal larval skeleton made of calcium carbonate spicules.

                      This is a section of the C. elegans gonad, showing chromosomes in the process of meiotic pairing and synapsis. The blue staining is chromosomal DNA, visualized with the stain DAPI. The green and red staining show the synaptonemal complex, a structure resembling a railroad track that connects chromosomes together. The green staining shows the protein HTP-3, which has two lines like the steel rails of a railroad; the red staining shows the protein SYP-1, which is like the wooden ties connecting the rails together. The distance between the green tracks is about 150 nanometers, which is too small to resolve with conventional microscopy. We use the 3D-SIM technique with the OMX microscope, which has twice the resolving power of a conventional optical microscope, to see these fine details.
