Mitochondria and nuclei. Fluorescent structured illumination micrograph (SIM) of mitochondria (green) and cell nuclei (blue) in the early embryo of the soil-dwelling nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans. Mitochondria are the site of energy production in eukaryotic cells. C. elegans is one of the most studied animals in biological and genetic research. This image was obtained using structured illumination microscopy, a technique that allows light microscopy to bypass the resolution limits imposed by the diffraction of light. This is OMX structured illumination microscopy, which uses 15 orientations and Fourier transform computer analysis.
