$2.4 million instrument upgrade will let scientists see what is happening inside microbes​​ | The Source | Washington University in St. Louis
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded David Fike, PhD, associate professor of earth and planetary sciences, $2.4 million to adapt a powerful chemical microscope called the 7F-GEO SIMS for biological samples. The updated instrument's ability to map the chemistry inside cells will boost research on microbes that are promising candidates for biofuel or bioenergy production.
