Open microscopy in the life sciences: Sharing is caring

  • Johannes Hohlbein

Together with other colleagues enthusiastic about open science, we recently published a comment on the past, presence and future potential of open microscopy (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41592-022-01602-3). Here, I will iterate on some of the key points with a focus on single-molecule localisation microscopy (SMLM) which allows monitoring molecular interactions in live cells and other complex samples. I will provide that examples demonstrate the huge potential of open microscopy in enabling interdisciplinary science and lowering the threshold for researchers to find the best solutions for their scientific imaging challenges.
