Confocal Microscopy

We are currently developing confocal microscopy applications in the CAVES using 3DVisualizer. We can simultaneously render multiple channels using different color palettes to distinguish the different channels. Results from bringing researchers into the CAVES to view their data suggest that novel insights will be obtained with use of 3DVisualizer. If you are interested in seeing your data in this context, please contact Dawn Sumner dysumner [at] ucdavis [dot] edu for more information.
