Image of the Week: DNA-strand breaks within tissue model after treatment with neutral He gas jet

This week’s image is taken from the recent Emerging Leaders article by Endre J Szili, Nishtha Gaur, et al. It shows DNA-strand breaks within a gelatin tissue model after treatment with a neutral He gas jet. The figure is an overlay of phase-contrast and fluorescence images to show the correlation between the distribution of DNA-strand breaks and the microscopic changes on the gelatin surface. The neutral gas jet was operated at 0.5 slpm He and the treatment time was 10 minutes.

You can read the full article now on IOPscience, along with the rest of the Emerging Leaders collection.
