Researchers have discovered the crystal structures of blue and red fluorescent proteins, which are used to illuminate molecules in cells. "Knowing the molecular structures of the chromophores -- the part of fluorescent protein molecules that gives them their color -- we can now do hypothesis-based designing of new probes, instead of relying on random mutations," the study's principal investigator said.
