Cells are a basic unit of life because each one holds a copy of an organism’s genetic information. The images of cells shown here are not displayed in a conventional way; instead, a 3-D fast fourier transformation of the original visual information has been computed. This technique is used to show high frequency information, usually unavailable to conventional microscopy, in a visible way.
