Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP): Methods and Pitfalls 2018

Introduction to FRET

During this afternoon session (no morning session), FRET principles, FRET pairs and the different methods to assess FRET (sensitized emission, acceptor Photobleaching and FLIM-FRET) will be described. Emphasis will be put on the controls and the microscope settings that will avoid false positives or negatives. An example of FRET-based Biosensor development will be also presented.
