Immunoelectron microscopy - Methods and protocols

Abstract

The tribute that the scientific community has to pay to this technique is impressive: thanks to immunoelectron microscopy the scientist’s dream to link strucure (form) and function, one of the dreams that shaped even the phylosopical reflection of our predecessors, well, this dream has became nearly a full reality while it was just fact and function, a battle between a dead body (structure) and a ghost (function). Immunoelectron microscopy provided in fact some of the first examples of our technical capacity to show how the form of a structure is so deeply linked to its functional activity. In a perspective view it has been something conceptually forerunner of present day synthetic biology and molecules design capacities to provide us with new functions or the way to modify/alter those functions we are interested in....

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
