Description

Meet scientists in Berkeley who have developed a powerful new microscope which uses x-rays to scan a whole cell and in a manner of minutes, generate a 3D view of the cell and its genetic material. This groundbreaking tool is helping to advance research into the development of biofuels, the treatment of malaria and it may even help to more rapidly diagnose cancer. A video from QUEST produced by KQED.
