Light

06 August 2015 publication

Articles in this August issue on 'Light' cover: the bioluminescence of N. gardneri and why these fungi glow; the role of endosymbiosis and its impact on the evolution of eukaryotes; how a curious light-emitting host–microbe model is aiding scientific research; the way hosts and microbes interact using infrared spectroscopy analysis; and the effects of violet-blue light on antimicrobial methodologies and systems. The Comment piece provides an overview of how microscope imaging has changed. The topic of the magazine fits with the 2015 United Nations International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies.
