Janelia Research Campus

Janelia Research Campus

Janelia is a pioneering research center where scientists from many disciplines gather to collaborate on some of science's most challenging problems.

Janelia scientists are working on discovering the basic rules and mechanisms of the brain's information-processing system and developing optical, biological, and computational technologies for creating and interpreting biological images.

Desmidiliaes comprises more than 8000 species of single-cell fresh water algae worldwide, exhibiting vast diversity of shapes and sizes. Desmids, like these captured at 400x magnification by Janelian Igor Siwanowicz, prefer nutrient-poor, slightly acidic water, and have low tolerance for heavy metals. 🎸
