BCF team carries out a development and implementation for Biophotonic instrumentations dedicated to dynamic interactions studies in vivo. We apply our developments to study the control of gene transcription via GiGa-Complexes proteins inside cellular nuclei.
Our goal is to use all properties of the light (wave length, lifetime, frequency domain, photon...) to characterize the dynamic of molecular or supramolecular interactions inside the cell, cell-tissue or organism.
Therefore, we apply very new strategies correlating different microscopies, existing or coming.
Images rise in photons characterized by restricted independant properties:
Spatial origin (x,y,z)
Time (macroscopy, microscopy)
Our aim is to invent instruments and methods to simultaneously analyse a maximum photon’s properties in order to develop a "Meta-Microscope".
In same way BCF take a large part in National Microscopy Network
(GDR2588 and RTmfm).
