Effect of cell sample size in atomic force microscopy nanoindentation

Graphical Abstract, showing cells, atomic force microscopy and the effect of sample size on the coefficient of variance of the Young's modulus of the cells Cells in the human body can be classified in many different ways. One of these is looking at their mechanical properties, and therefore at how stiff or soft they are. This characteristic has been shown to correlate to d...

Prenatal growth map of the mouse knee joint by means of deformable registration technique

Methodological Pipeline Joint morphogenesis is the process of development of the joint that starts before the birth. It is important to study joint morphogenesis in order to understand how it is related to musculoskeletal diseases and to optimise related interventions. In several cases the interventions are tested on animal models and the mouse pre-natal model is typic...
