K. Rein et al., "The Drosophila standard brain," Current Biology, 12[3]:227-31, Feb. 5, 2002.

"The authors present an approach to create a 3D image of the fly brain. This is a very useful resource tool that will make it possible to create an atlas of gene expression patterns and will be very useful for analyzing brain structure in mutant backgrounds."

X-Ray Crystallography

F.J. Lopez-Jaramillo et al., "Crystallization and cryocrystallography inside X-ray capillaries," Journal of Applied Crystallography, 34:365-370, 2001.

"Isolated crystals are grown in a gelled agarose-protein solution inside X-ray capillaries, cryoprotected with glycerol inside the same capillary, and X-rayed inside the same capillary. Performing all of the growing and imaging functions inside the same reactor minimizes crystal handling and permits analysis at different temperatures or other conditions. The authors present a laser pointer system...
