Like many biological processes, oocyte development depends on careful orchestration of protein localization. Optogenetic approaches have the potential to manipulate this dynamic system with spatial and temporal precision and molecular specificity. This chapter describes the use of a photocaged chemical inducer of dimerization to control localization of genetically tagged proteins with light. As an example, we recruit a fluorescently tagged protein to one spindle pole in metaphase.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 March 2019.
All research outputs
of 20,981,820 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 11,819 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 296,049 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,981,820 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,819 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 296,049 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
