Time-resolved confocal fluorescence microscopy from PicoQuant

Sponsored by PicoQuant, on 31 January 2024

On January 11th Professor Samrat Mukhopadhyay shared insights into the complicated behavior of the FUS low-complexity domain during liquid-liquid phase separation. He and his team study protein dynamics at the single molecule level with Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS), single-molecule FRET (smFRET), and anisotropy to gain a comprehensive understanding. His excellent presentation sparked great interest: All
