Tracking of Single Lipid Droplets in Living Cells
Project Description

Lipid droplets are highly dynamic. However, the motion of lipid droplets is not well understood yet. We would like to image single droplets in living cells and investigate the motion of single lipid droplets in living cells. Through it, we will develop a model for explaining the motion of lipid droplets in living cells.
