Cell biology is being transformed by the use of fluorescent proteins as fusion tags to track protein behaviour in living cells. Here, we discuss the techniques of photobleaching and photoactivation, which can reveal the location and movement of proteins. Widespread applications of these fluorescent-based methods are revealing new aspects of protein dynamics and the biological processes that they regulate.
