Cell of the Month
Nature Cell Biology Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology
Nature Cell Biology and Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology are pleased to present a joint supplement on imaging in cell biology. The specially commissioned articles focus on key advances in imaging techniques, which allow us to follow cell-biological events ranging from the dynamics of single molecules in living cells to the development of whole organisms. Until March 2004, supplement articles will be available free — thanks to support from Carl Zeiss — as part of a web Focus, which also contains a collection of relevant articles from our past issues and from other Nature Publishing Group journals.
