3D Neutron Image of Wheat Seedling

view full-size image

Three-dimensional neutron image of a wheat seedling with roots colonized by gadolinium-labeled Pantoea sp. YR343 approximately 5 days after inoculation. Root colonization is observed as a rough textural pattern (orange) along the root surface. Researchers can rotate the image on screen for more in-depth analysis.
