To Lineage – Using VisBio
Advantage in using VisBio: It is very labor intensive to lineage an embryo’s development. Sulston once stated if you skip one-day, you lose track of some cell divisions (Sulston, 1983). Now, with the help of advanced technologies and software development, researchers are able to record the development of an embryo as a 4-dimensional (3 dimensions in space + time = 4 dimensions) movie. They then are able to observe and annotate the movie using programs such as VisBio. Below, basic concepts and brief tutorial in using VisBio will be introduced.
