X-ray nanotomography now available at SOLEIL!

The new X-ray nanotomography instrument on the ANATOMIX beamline at SOLEIL has seen its first official users. The DYSCOL unit (Dynamics and Structure of Liquid Bodies) of the French National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA) used the instrument to obtain 3D volume images of seeds of an oil- and protein-rich plant on length scales characteristic of intracellular lipid-storage organelles, without physically cutting the specimens or applying staining protocols to enhance contrast.

2nd International Conference on Lipid Droplets and Oleosomes Strasbourg, March 29 & 30, 2021

Welcome to the 2nd International Conference on Lipid Droplets and Oleosomes ! This event will be the second of a series initiated in Wageningen in 2018. Lipid Droplet & Oleosomes conference aims at covering major aspects of lipid droplet research. The 2021 conference will be dedicated to natural lipid droplet biogenesis, structure and dynamics of these organelles, and the industrial and economic interest they arouse as crop-derived raw materials for foods, cosmetics, and many other applications. Scientific sessions of a two-day program of talks and networking will be based on expertises in biology, chemistry, physical chemistry, imaging and spectroscopy methods, and processes and applications. The objective of the conference under construction is to provide an ideal setting for all participants to interact and network, and to foster further exchanges and cooperations.
We hope to see you in person next spring !
