Fluorescent Protein Data

Here is a table of all the important data from many of the fluorescent proteins:

The first table lists fluorescent protein data, while the second table (scroll past the first table) lists information about fluorescent proteins that are optical highlighters. You can sort or filter the data as you wish.

Download this data (includes data from both tables below) as an excel spreadsheet (Thanks to Nicolas Touret for compiling this data and providing the excel file)
