One of the most pervasive challenges in modern biology is to understand how the physical structure of a system dictates its function, especially during development. Over the past two-decades, imaging based microscopy methods have been transformed from a disparate set of optical and electron imaging techniques to a cohesive array of primary tools that allow the determination of physical structures at a sub-cellular level, and how that structure can change over time at high spatial resolution. Length scales from whole organisms to single molecules and time scales from molecular diffusion to organ growth can studied with ease. Particular emphasis will be given in this discussion on the use of light and electron-based imaging techniques in the study of developmental processes in vivo.
