PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

sharp bands?

This is terrifically exciting work. Congratulations!

I am wondering how you think about the crispness / sharpness of the bands of cell growth or fluorescence (as shown in Figures 3 & 4)? What's responsible for making this work so well? How far do you think the tuning of the sharpness of the bands can be pushed?
