Posted by cfaulkner on 26 May 2011 at 08:34 GMT

This article has developed a new tool with exciting applications relating to both light and electron microscopy. Readers and potential users may be interested to compare the utility of miniSOG with iLOV (Chapman et al., 2008, PNAS 105:20038; doi: 10.1073/pnas0807551105) and FbFPs (Drepper et al., 2007, Nature Biotech. 25:443; doi: 10.1038/nbt1293) which are tools originating from the same or similar starting sequences.
