Super-resolution microscopy has become essential for the study of nanoscale biological processes. This type of imaging often requires specialised methods to collect and process a large volume of recorded data and extract quantitative information. In recent years, our team and collaborators have built an open-source ecosystem of computational, biochemical and optical approaches for live-cell super-resolution microscopy, designed to combine high performance and ease of use. This seminar will present some of these approaches such as SRRF, SQUIRREL, VirusMapper, Super-Beacons, ZeroCostDL4Mic and vLume, showcasing their application in the study of biological processes such as viral infection.
