Live microscopy

Submission status

Visualising biology is a proven powerful strategy of scientific discovery, with live microscopy being a particularly successful endeavour. But only the latest revolutionary technologies in advanced live cell microscopy demonstrate the desired technological leap capable of overcoming the challenge to image the inner workings of living cells, tissues, and organs. The expectation is that these new technologies and methodologies will shape biomedical sciences in the years to come.

Communications Biology is inviting submissions on the topic of articles in live microscopy – from new tools to emerging techniques, from conventional to advanced light microscopy - with the aim of publishing high-quality research devoted to advance our understanding of biology. Reviews, Perspectives, and Comments covering these topics will also be considered for inclusion in the Collection. All submissions will be subject to the same review process and editorial standards as regular Communications Biology Articles.
