The combination of electron microscopy with transmitted light microscopy (termed correlative light and electron microscopy; CLEM) has been employed for decades to generate molecular identification that can be visualized by a dark, electron-dense precipitate. This new volume of Methods in Cell Biology covers many areas of CLEM, including a brief history and overview on CLEM methods, imaging of intermediate stages of meiotic spindle assembly in C. elegans embryos using CLEM, and capturing endocytic segregation events with HPF-CLEM.

Key Features

  • Covers many areas of CLEM by the best international scientists in the field
  • Includes a brief history and overview on CLEM methods
  • Readership

    Researchers and students in cell, molecular and developmental biology
