Damaging Healthy Eye Cells: New Insights Into Diseases Causing The Loss Of Vision.

Source : Medical News Today

There are two major light receptor cells in the mammalian eye: rods and cones. New research by scientists from Duke University have shown that dying cone cells can trigger the demise of healthy rod cells, leading to the loss of vision.Full Story

    Stereomicroscopes: Seeing More in 3D than Ever Before

    Depending on the magnification, stereoscopes can provide large fields of view or zoom in on details of interest. Unlike other microscopes, stereoscopes also have a large working distance to allow for experimental tasks. These qualities make stereoscopes ideal for applications that require manipulations and hand-eye coordination, such as dissection and microsurgery in biology.

    Researchers have largely coalesced around delivery vehicles based on adenovirus (Ad), adeno-associated virus (AAV) and lentivirus (lenti), each with its own distinct virtues and vices. To assist researchers, we look at different aspects of viral vectors, what features distinguish each type and what applications they are best suited for.
