Time-lapse analysis offers new look at how cells repair DNA damage

Time-lapse analysis offers new look at how cells repair DNA damage

Time-lapse imaging can make complicated processes easier to grasp. Berkeley Lab scientists are using a similar approach to study how cells repair DNA damage. Microscopy images are acquired about every thirty minutes over a span of up to two days, and the resulting sequence of images shows ever-changing hotspots inside cells where DNA is under repair.
