Fluorescent proteins in microbial biotechnology-new proteins and new applications.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Colleges, School and Institutes


The recent advances over the past 5 years in the utilisation of fluorescent proteins in microbial biotechnology applications, including recombinant protein production, food processing, and environmental biotechnology, are reviewed. We highlight possible areas where fluorescent proteins currently used in other bioscience disciplines could be adapted for use in biotechnological applications and also outline novel uses for recently developed fluorescent proteins.
