New generations of red fluorescent proteins (RFPs) with improved photophysical and photochemical properties will greatly benefit bioimaging applications in biological and biomedical research, and engineering new RFPs with desirable optical properties is of great interest to me. I am currently developing new spectroscopic methodology to further advance the capability of the flow cytometry in directed evolution of RFPs. Another focus of my work is to understand sequence-function relationships of RFPs to guide the design of new RFPs.
