Green Fluorescent Protein

Structure of GFP (Phillips, Rice University, Houston)

A diaporama on fluorescence, pigments, light sources, variants of GFP (University of Cologne)

A homepage on GFP would be incomplete without de Jim Haseloff's homepage and his movies. 

He has an impressive collection of GFP-tagged genes involved in the development of Arabidopsis roots.

Don't miss it!
