Amazing Images from the Analytical and Quantitative Light Microscopy Course
Analytical and Quantitative Light Microscopy (AQLM) kicked off the 2022 Advanced Research Training Course season at the MBL. AQLM, which took place from April 27 - May 6, is a comprehensive course for researchers in biology, medicine, and material sciences. It provides a systematic and in-depth examination of the theory of image formation and application of video and digital methods for exploring subtle interactions between light and the specimen.
As one would expect from a course focused on microscopy, there were some amazing visuals to come out of this year's 2022 AQLM course.

#AQLM2022 (Day 7) There is some rain outside but inside we are pushing resolution beyond diffraction limit with #STORM. Also, with #light #sheet microscopy, phototoxicity and size do not limit us either. Here, stunning Paryhale embryo! @MBLScience pic.twitter.com/F3dchtPodd
