  • Microscopy: Bright light, better labels, Nature, October 5, 2011 by Monya Baker

    The tiniest structures in cells can be seen only using sophisticated instrumentation and informatics, but what biologists really need are improved fluorescent probes. Although advances in instrumentation and informatics should not be overlooked, many researchers believe that it is better-performing fluorescent labels that will allow super-resolution microscopy to continue to move forward. George Patterson, NIBIB Intramural Program, comments on fluorescent proteins.
