Super Resolution CTFM in Nature Methods

Super Resolution Correlative Tweezers Fluorescence Microscopy (SR-CTFM) was featured in Nature Methods. The VU team presented the CTFM single-molecule approach capable of visualizing individual DNA-binding proteins on densely covered DNA and in the presence of high protein concentrations. The method combines optical tweezers with multicolour confocal and stimulated emission depletion…
