Abstract

Quest for transparency: Detailed optical imaging of complex biological entities remains an unmet goal mainly because of the light scattering of biological tissue. A new approach to tissue clearing termed CLARITY is getting us closer to an anatomical view of thick tissues and entire organs with cellular resolution.
