The visualization of cell biological processes has become an important approach to studying protein structure and function. Roger Tsien's discovery of green fluorescent protein and related fluorophores, their use as tools to study cellular processes using fusion proteins and the associated technological revolution in fluorescence microscopy, have seen the adoption of imaging techniques as a primary tool in every cell biologist's bag of tricks. Live cell imaging techniques are now providing another line of investigation for cell biological processes and molecular studies. The recent advances in super resolution microscopy have also added to the structural detail that can be visualised. The high sensitivity and specificity now attainable with spectral and two photon systems and the capacity to both "gate" and utilise auto and endogenous fluorescence have also added significantly to imaging capacity. At a recent meeting of Australasian cell biologists in Adelaide, a range of imaging techniques were discussed and through hands on practical forums new technologies and industry providers engaged. An international guest from the NIH, Dr Roberto Weigert, provided expert instruction on state of the art live cell and intravital imaging and demonstrated applications for respectively the analysis of in vitro and in vivo systems. In this special guest issue on "Imaging in Cell biology and Development" in the Journal Cells, a series of review articles, technical briefs and research articles are being assembled to reflect some of the available techniques and approaches available to the modern cell biologist and how these can be utilised to resolve cellular mechanism.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
