Inexpensive Super-Resolution Microscopy
Wyss Institute scientists have developed a highly versatile and inexpensive microscopic imaging platform designed to visualize objects with molecular-scale resolution and unprecedented complexity. The DNA-powered imaging technology can reveal the inner workings of cells at the single molecule level, using conventional microscopes found in most laboratories. Key to the Wyss Institute’s DNA-driven imaging super resolution...
Video/AnimationSeed-dependent crisscross DNA-origami slatsThis animation explains how the newly invented crisscross origami method can be used to build functionalized micron-scale DNA megastructures composed of many unique DNA origami “slats,” each with their own complexity and interactive properties.

Exchange-PAINT: Neurons Up Close and PersonalDNA Exchange Imaging of fixed mouse hippocampal neurons stained sequentially with antibodies recognizing neuronal markers Synapsin I, vGAT, MAP2, pNFH, α-tubulin, acetyl-tubulin, GFAP and nuclear marker DAPI. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationDNA CagesTo create supersharp images of their cage-shaped DNA polyhedra, the scientists used DNA-PAINT, a microscopy method that uses short strands of DNA (yellow) labeled with a fluorescent chemical (green) to bind and release partner strands on polyhedra corners, causing them to blink. The blinking corners reveal the shape of structures far too small to be...
