This special issue focuses on two major aspects of cell biology: imaging and quantitation. The history of cell biology has been tightly interwoven with imaging and in particular with advances in microscopy throughout the past centuries (Wolpert 1995; Evanko et al. 2009; Milestones Light Microscopy 2009). The invention ofmicroscopes was instrumental in defining cell theory, centuries ago, and the boundaries of visualization advanced further with electron microscopy, decades ago.
