Brainbow and XFP

Dawen Cai is a pioneering researcher of Brainbow and continues to improve its usefulness and accessibility. The Cai Lab is looking for new collaborators to develop novel means to deliver and control Brainbow expression. The Cre version of Brainbow with AAV9 is currently available at Addgene. The Brainbow antibody is also now available through Ximbio, which improves the signal amplitude of your Brainbow labeled tissue. Similarly, XFP fluorescent proteins also achieve random color mixing with CNS neurons. If you hope to use XFP labeling with tissue clearing, please also contact the Clover Center at Caltech.
