Masterclass: Single-molecule imaging

By Tineke Lenstra (NKI) and Marvin Tanenbaum (Hubrecht Institute)

Single-molecule imaging allows for very detailed, quantitative visualization of cellular processes, such as gene expression, in real-time in living and fixed cells.

In this masterclass, Marvin Tanenbaum and Tineke Lenstra will provide an overview of different single-molecule imaging modalities, including single-molecule RNA FISH, single-molecule tracking, live-cell imaging of transcription and translation, 3D orbital tracking, and imaging of viral infection with nanobodies. We will discuss their applications, opportunities, and challenges.

The morning will be filled with lectures by both labs and a guest lecture by Lukas Kapitein on super resolution microscopy. In the afternoon, you will see several microscopes in action, learn how to analyze single-molecule imaging data and brainstorm about applications for your own research.
