Science Magazine shows how a new program lets microscope track tiny objects over time. A team of Austrian researchers developed new software that allows microscopes to not only track a slowly moving object, but also capture incredible time-lapse footage, speeding up the action.

The researchers were able to watch the cells in root tips of plants (Arabidopsis thaliana) growing and splitting in 3D over the course of days, they report this month on the preprint server bioRxiv.
