 High-resolution X-ray microscopy is increasingly used for structural phenotyping studies for plant biology at macro-, micro-, and nanoscale levels. To demonstrate the benefits that arise from having one instrument with multiple detectors, we imaged an apple at three different scales using our Bruker SkyScan 2214 Multi-scale X-ray Nano-CT.
Automatic analysis of the 3-D microstructure of fruit parenchyma tissue using X-ray micro-CT explains differences in aeration This study presents an automated method for processing high-resolution micro-CT images of parenchyma tissues of apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.) and pear (Pyrus communis L.) tissue, providing a quick objective method for characterizing 3D
Through the Guam Ecosystems Collaboratorium for Corals and Oceans (GECCO) funded by NSF EPSCoR, University of Guam researchers are investigating the genetic diversity of reef builders at the species and population level. Mastophora is a broadly distributed genus of calcified red macroalgae and consists of three well-characterized species. Mastophora
Micro-CT is increasingly used to analyze the internal structure and to monitor the morphology of algae as they are altered by their external environment. Algae provide for half of the phtosynthetic production of organic material on earth and are a sustainable source of biomass and oils for fuel, food,
To better understand the functions of coniifers and pinecones, micro-CT is increasingly used to analyze their internal structure and to efficiently monitor the morphology of pinecones as they are altered by their external environment. Micro-CT is used with pinecones for tree breeding studies to confirm when pollination and fertilization
