Giant Viruses under correlative light-electron microscopy

In this webinar we talk about the possibilities of integrated CLEM for studying giant viruses, which are found in environmental, animal, as well as human samples. Giant viruses are rarely studied with light microscopy due to the lack of access to their ultrastructure. However, because of their big size, they could be observed with fluorescence and their ultrastructure studied with EM. Simultaneous CLEM combines these two techniques and allows us to both identify and study giant virus infected cells.
