Biological functions are tightly linked to the spatial organization of different bio-molecules. Visualizing this organization with high resolution and following its evolution in time at the single cell level remains a challenge with regular optical techniques. The aim of this project is to develop an instrument that combines state of the art 3D single molecule microscopy with low temperature reversible cell arrest to follow the evolution of molecular organization at different stages of the cell cycle.
