  1. 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?
