The purpose of this technical bulletin is to provide an introduction to fluorescence microscopy to newcomers to the technique, and to collect a variety of protocols for specific applications of fluorescence in one place. In this bulletin, I have tried to assemble some of the techniques and lore that I have found particularly useful.
