Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer. A technique for studying how proteins interact with one another. In the technique, two different proteins are labeled with different fluorophores. If the two proteins interact, the fluorophore of one molecule will absorb light at one wavelength, and transfer it to the other fluorophore on the other molecule, where it will be emitted at a different wavelength. See also Fluorophores.
Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer- In two adjacent dyes, the energy of an excited electron in one dye (the donor) is passed to an electron of an adjacent dye (the acceptor) through resonance, then released as a photon.
FRET is a commandline tool for developers that analyzes and compares multiple files of a similar format. It prints a table describing the layout of the data structures in these files. Its goal is to document the format of undocumented file formats. It uses no specific file format information, but uses heuristics and statistics, and is designed to integrate with hex editors and packet filters.
