Welcome to the new home of Microscopy & Imaging Resources on the WWW. We have moved the entire site to Drupal, which required us to change all the URLs. Please update your bookmarks.

Portions of this site have been on-line (different domain names) since 1996 and I do my best to keep it up-to-date. Additional background information about the site is available. Thanks for visiting!
