Our very first webinar is now live. The topic is “Fluorescent protein and sensors: A practical discussion” and you can register to view it at
www.nature.com/webcasts/fluorescent_proteins. Update: Registration link inactivated. Please go here to listen to the archived discussion in .mp3 format.
Nature Methods was joined by Robert Campbell, David Piston and Thomas Knopfel who have been developing and using fluorescent proteins and sensors for years. We had a nice discussion that provided good practical information for users of these tools. If you haven’t watched it, I encourage you to do so. If you watch the webcast within the first month it is live you have the opportunity to submit questions for our participants. Please use the form on the webcast viewing page to submit questions. There will be a delay in providing answers here on our blog while we consult with the participants.
Here we will be posting the questions we receive and answers from our participants. Readers may also comment directly on the blog below but we can not guarantee that any questions asked there will be answered. We do encourage anyone in the community to chime in with their response to any questions that are posed, even if they don’t agree with our participants.
