Nathan Shaner feature article and mNeonGreen

Dr. Nathan Shaner is the subject of the Author File in this months issue of Nature Methods. Dr. Shaner, the lead scientist on the publication ""A bright monomeric green fluorescent protein derived from Branchiostoma lanceolatum," found in the same issue, is a co-founder of the Scintillon Institute as well as a scientist at Allele Biotech. The article, which offers some insights into his career and recent projects, can be found here.


We would also like to draw attention to his most recent publication and the release of mNeonGreen, the brightest monomeric fluorescent protein (FP) to date, in the journal Nature Methods. "A bright monomeric green fluorescent protein derived from Branchiostoma lanceolatum", which was published online in March, describes the protein's development and unique properties.
Allele is now offering licensing opportunities for mNeonGreen, information on the licensing models can be found here. Along with the new licensing models, we would like to promote our recently launched Superresolution Imaging Portal which has information on various Superresolution imaging techniques (PALM, STORM, SIM, STED), tools, and equipment. Our goal is to provide everyone with a convenient source containing all the information they need to harness the power of Superresolution Imaging.
