Cells bulge to squeeze through barriers

29-Nov-2017

Invasive cells deploy a trick to break through tissues and spread to other parts of the body, researchers report. In a new study, 3-D time-lapse imaging of cellular "break-ins" in the transparent worm C. elegans reveals a fleeting, yet key structure in action. A single protrusion bulges out from ...

New microscope sets a record for visualizing surface wetting properties

29-Nov-2017

Wetting is an everyday phenomenon that represents how well liquid spreads on a surface. When water comes into contact with an extremely water-repellent, or 'superhydrophobic' surface, droplets bead up and roll off easily. Aalto University researchers have developed a measurement technique called ...
