Visitors are welcomed to the world of molecular biology by large-format animated lightboxes, colorfully and dynamically introducing everyone to the wonders of the microscopic world being researched here.
By magnifying views of organisms using visible light, light microscopy takes the researchers to new levels where they can see things that are smaller than the wavelength of light. Think cells, but even the viruses and proteins withing them.
The dynamic lightboxes make these magnified organisms understandable for the untrained eye. With precise animation, they highlight different layers and the movement within these research objects.
A great example is the large-format slice of a mouse brain, that clearly shows the individual neurons in the brain.
