The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and Lockheed Martin are working to streamline and speed the delivery of critical maps, imagery and other geospatial data to users worldwide. The Demand-Based Geospatial Intelligence (DBGI) program is an automated supply chain management system that allows users to request and access geospatial data in the format and delivery method of their choosing.
Seeing proteins in their natural environment and interactions inside cells has been a long-standing goal. Using an advanced microscopy technique called cryo-electron tomography, researchers from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory [EMBL] have visualised proteins responsible for cell-cell contacts for the first time. In this week’s issue of Nature they publish the first 3D image of human skin at molecular resolution and reveal the molecular Velcro-like organisation that interlinks cells.
Nikon Instruments, Inc. today unveiled the latest entry in its Digital Sight line of cameras for microscopy, the DS-Ri1 camera, designed for high resolution color documentation applications. It is an evolution to the DXM1200 series of cameras, retaining several of the DXM1200's key features while adding several improvements in connectivity, color rendition and performance.
