Scientists have created a new approach to imaging technology combining green fluorescent proteins and femtosecond pulsed lasers to provide a real-time view of chemical and biological actions. The idea is to improve the study of processes including cancer proliferation. "With this technology, we're going to be able to slow down the observation of living processes and understand the exact sequences of biochemical reactions," said lead investigator Chong Fang. Details appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
