Scientists from a Polish-French-Swiss team have developed a method to use fluorescence to visualize the mitochondrial pool of proteins found in different places of the cell. The researchers have created a yeast strain, the wide use of which will make it possible to understand how mitochondria - the cell's power plants - work.
