Time lapse videomicrography of the life cycle of Dictostelium

submitted by: Arjumond
Distinct stages of Dictyostelium discoideum life cycle can be seen. As the video starts there is a wave of bacterial growth across the agar. From the implantation site of the spores, you can see the myxamoeba migrating out consuming the E.coli. As the E.coli is consumed you can see a clearing in the agar after which the myxamoeba using chemical signaling form multicellular slugs. The slugs can be seen migrating across the field of view, with the formation of a sorocarp in the upper right...

Aggregation of mouse fetal cells on a SAN nanofiber insert.

submitted by: Arjumond
Visualization of the formation of one large amorphous cell aggregate migrating across the surface of a SAN nanofiber insert. Early passage mouse fetal cells in suspension were injected into a Sykes-Moore chamber containing a SAN nanofiber insert. The cells attached to the nanofiber insert and were observed for seven days using time-lapse videomicrography. Aggregation of a cell monoloayer into one large globular cell aggregate which migrates across the field of view, as observed with 10X...

Robotic Mouse Makes Maze Debut at UC San Diego
