Show your true colours.

FUCCI (Fluorescence Ubiquitination Cell Cycle Indicator) transduced corneal cells indicate their stage of the cell cycle as they migrate out from a central sphere. Red indicates G1 of the cell cycle, Green indicates S/G2/M stages of the cell cycle and yellow indicates cells in the G1 to S transition. Imaged using the FLOID Cell Imaging Station, fluorescence channel images overlaid using Adobe Photoshop

Equipment: FLOID Cell Imaging Station; Adobe Photoshop
