IF images

IF images

Here are some of the images I obtained during the summer with the confocal microscope. These are HeLa cells exposed to different conditions in order to see how different factors affect localization of CHIP.  The table in the word doc shows different channels collected by different filters of the confocal microscope after excitation of sample with photons. It was really cool to be able to learn so much from this technique. The images were then analyzed via Fiji image processing program. I was able to combine these channels to illustrate merged image. Obtaining images was probably the hardest part and  just optimizing conditions for images. I look forward to learning more about using the microscope in order to help me collect data in the future. After my experiment was over, I gave an oral presentation to two groups at MPI at one of the meetings. It was great to get up there and tell them about my work.  I look forward to sharing my work at W&M soon.
