Time-Lapse Analysis Offers New Look at How Cells Repair DNA Damage

DNA-150x150A computerized way has been developed to measure DNA repair in thousands of human mammary epithelial cells before and after they’re exposed to ionizing radiation. Microscopy images are acquired about every half hour over a span of up to two days, and the resulting sequence of images shows hotspots inside cells where DNA is under repair. More>
