1. My first attempt at flourescence microscopy, it turned out pretty good. Mitochondria are shown in red, actin is shown in green, and the DNA is shown in blue. This is actually three overlaid images. The light source is controlled to excite only one small wavelength range at a time, giving monochromatic images of specific parts of cells. From there, we can assign colors to each layer to give vivid results.
