The Zeiss Laser Capture Dissection Microscope allows for the spatially resolved collection and enrichment of unique populations of cells from a thin section of tissue, biofilm, or monolayer of cells. Samples can be collected based on specific morphology or fluorescent labeling. Enriched populations can then be used for propagation or omics analysis.
- Supporting the Biomolecular Pathways Integrated Research Platform, this resource enables the isolation of specific cell-types or single cells for further omics analyses such as cell-specific proteomics or single-cell RNA-Seq for transcriptional analysis.
- Supporting the Cell Signaling and Communications Integrated Research Platform, this resource supports studies on the spatial organization of tissues and microbial communities to understand the structure-function relationships and the molecular pathways within and between cells.
- Supporting the Rhizosphere Function Integrated Research Platform, this resource provides new insights to the interactions between plant tissue and the microbial community, such as interactions between roots and nitrogen-fixing bacteria, to better understand the molecular mechanisms underlying plant productivity and resilience to environmental stress.
