This is the most detailed view ever of a developing mouse

This entry was posted in Science on by . [^]

These color-coded mouse embryos represent a breakthrough for understanding early mammalian development. A powerful new computer-assisted microscope has for the first time let researchers observe how a mouse embryo develops primitive organs, following the fate of individual cells along the way.

The microscope, described today in Cell, shines a sheet of laser light through the embryo, allowing researchers to see the cells deep inside. Earlier versions of the microscope were able to analyze zebrafish and fruit fly embryos, but mouse embryos are much more difficult. They are not only harder to keep alive in the lab, they are also much larger’making it much more difficult to see all the way through them. The microscope uses new machine learning techniques’a form of artificial intelligence in which computers learn from data’to track the embryo and keep it in focus as it drifts in its culture medium and grows by an order of magnitude from day 6 to day 8 of development. It also uses advanced algorithms to sort through millions of images to track cells as they move and divide.
