Paper Roundup – February 2017

This will be my last paper roundup, and might be a bit shorter than usual as I begin to step away from UCSF.

  • A dye with 1050 nm emission for IR imaging [1]
  • STED with background depletion for clearer images [2]
  • An online tool for visualization of volumetric data [3]
  • A scattering compensation scheme for two photon microscopy [4]
  • Phasor analysis for spectral unmixing [5]
  • Cryogenic optical localization with Angstrom resolution [6]
  • Automated neurite segmentation algorithm [7]
  • Measuring complex stoichiometry with FRET [8]
  • Single-molecule FRET to constrain protein structures [9]
