Prof. Adrienne Roeder Studies Link Between Plant Cell Division and Identity | The Cornell Daily Sun | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

“My position at Cornell is perfect. I am in the plant biology department, but, being part of the Weill Institute, I have access to the whole range of biology,” Roeder said. She studies the role that cell growth and division play in the diversity of cell size in the Arabidopsis sepal. Arabidopsis is a flowering plant and its sepal the green tissue located on the outside of the plant that surrounds and protects the flower. A major part of Roeder’s research also involves imaging and computer modeling.

Frozen plants spring back to life

Frozen plants spring back to life | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

Scientists in Russia have grown plants from fruit stored away in permafrost by squirrels over 30,000 years ago. The fruit was found in the banks of the Kolyma River in Siberia, a top site for people looking for mammoth bones. The Institute of Cell Biophysics team raised plants of Silene stenophylla - of the campion family - from the fruit.

Video: Smart Petri Dish Images Cells Using a Smartphone Camera and Legos | Popular Science

Video: Smart Petri Dish Images Cells Using a Smartphone Camera and Legos | Popular Science | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

Despite all the huge advances in medical technology in the past couple centuries, petri dishes, one of the most crucial pieces of equipment, haven’t changed much at all. Now a grad student at Caltech has finally brought these flat-bottomed bowls into the 21st century.
The new device, dubbed ePetri, uses an imaging chip from a mobile phone camera, a smartphone and Lego blocks. The imaging chip acts as the petri dish in the traditional sense, holding the cell culture beneath a sheet of protective plastic. The square chip is placed inside a platform made of Legos, and an Android phone hooks in place on top. The phone’s LED screen is used as a scanning light source, illuminating the image sensor.
