The Gulliver multiscale bioimaging workshop is organized by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to survey new imaging modalities over relevant spatial and temporal resolution. By combining appropriate methods, it is now possible to obtain highly synergistic information about biological material but the integration is still a major challenge. The LBNL Gulliver Initiative, starting with this workshop, aims to address the barriers and stimulate the development of (1) imaging and detection technologies whose spatial resolution levels range from molecules up to whole organisms, (2) technologies that address all relevant time scales, (3) labeling methods that facilitate studies across multiple scales and imaging modalities, (4) instrumentation and computational methods to correlate, integrate and visualize imaging information from these different imaging modalities, and (5) a clear focus on the specific and important biological research goals that require these capabilities.
