Software developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. and software company Lume VR Ltd. enables super-resolution microscopy data to be visualized and analyzed in virtual reality.

The software, vLUME, uses clustering algorithms to find patterns in multiple datasets with millions of data points, then permits the sharing of findings via images and/or video.

Said Lume's Alexandre Kitching, "vLUME is revolutionary imaging software that brings humans into the nanoscale. It allows scientists to visualize, question, and interact with 3D (three-dimensional) biological data, in real time all within a virtual reality environment, to find answers to biological questions faster."
