The cover picture shows semiconductor quantum dots engaged in Förster resonance energy transfer with fluorophore-functionalized biomolecules. Multiple-color lifetime analysis of sophisticated systems and nanometer spatial resolution are some of the important advantages of fluorescence in nanobiotechnology, report N. Hildebrandt and co-workers. Have a look at this colorful world on page 2297 and discover the secrets of fluorescence in nanobiotechnology!
