In life sciences, fluorescence microscope is a powerful tool for qualitative research on specific proteins, nucleic acids, sugars, lipids, and certain ions in cells based on optical microscopy.
In the field of botany, because plant cells have cell walls, and the thickness of the cell walls will vary greatly with plant types, cell types, plant growth time, growth conditions, and water content. It does not have good adherence like animal cells, so the use of fluorescence microscope for marking observation is becoming more and more common.
Nowadays, the related concepts and experimental technologies of genetic engineering are also changing with the advancement of science and technology. As a very common plant model organism in genetically modified research institutes, Arabidopsis thaliana has small plants, more fruit, short cycles, distinct morphological characteristics, and self-reproduction. , The simple genome and many other advantages have greatly shortened the test cycle of genetic engineering.
Fluorescence microscope has the advantages of specific labeling and real-time dynamic imaging of living cells or tissues. Combined with the characteristics of model organisms, it can further shorten the experimental period and observe the expression traits.
