Dennis’ work on the behaviour of fluorescent proteins (FPs) in baker’s yeast has been published! With the help of Daan de Groot and Phillipp Schmidt, a variety of fluorescent proteins were characterised for various properties, including brightness, photobleaching, photochromism, day-to-day variation and monomerism. Many FPs showed different performance in yeast compared to previous characterisations done
