In this video, mitochondria are coloured red, and DNA is marked in green. As the mitochondria start to die, they begin to ball up, before releasing the DNA which we see as green spots appearing outside the mitochondria.

Lattice light sheet microscope

Optical microscopy has become one of the most powerful tools in medical research.

WEHI's Centre for Dynamic Imaging is advancing our understanding of how diseases develop, spread and respond to treatment.
