AbstractThis course will introduce basic concepts of fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy applied to the observation of biological systems. The course will focus on the design, preparation and implementation of small-molecule and protein-based probes for biological investigations.
ObjectiveTo understand the basic chemical aspects of bioimaging and photoactivation in biology.
ContentPrinciples of fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy, fluorescent dyes and proteins, chemiluminescence, super-resolution microscopy, and fluorescent sensors.
Lecture notesHandouts, selected original literature, quizzes, and other materials will be provided electronically.
