About This Simulation
In this simulation, you will learn about the benefits of using a confocal microscope over other optical imaging techniques. You will have a close look at the setup of this type of microscope and how to operate it. Finally, you will be trained in how to acquire pin-sharp micrographs and mind-blowing 3D renderings of your sample. Your overall task will be to use confocal microscopy to investigate a mystery plant disease found on a barley plant from your uncle’s crop fields. Are you ready to identify the fungus and give your uncle advice on a potential treatment?
