photocontrol of gene expression systems

very cool talk. they turned on and off transcription by switching between vis and uv light. they turned on and off translation by controling compaction of mrna also controlled with light. fianlly they managed to trap photosensitive nanodroplets. the drops are repelled by uv and attracted to visible light. they trapped the drops by surrounding vis light with uv to keep the drop in the center.
