Caption

Cancer research. Female researcher examining DNA autoradiographs on a computer monitor during research into childhood brain tumours. Radioactively-labelled pieces of tumour DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) were separated by gel electrophoresis into bands representing the genetic code. To produce an autoradiograph of these bands, a phosphor screen (not seen) is exposed to the gel, before undergoing laser-induced fluorescence in the phosphorimager autoradiography system (lower right). Comparison with healthy tissue will indicate regions of genetic alteration. Photographed in the Cancer Research Unit at Newcastle University, England.
