Abstract

Single quantum dot tracking (SQDT) is a powerful technique for interrogating biomolecular dynamics in living cells and tissue. SQDT has particularly excelled in driving discovery at the single-molecule level in the fields of neuronal communication, plasma membrane organization, viral infection, and immune system response. Here, we briefly characterize various elements of the SQDT analytical framework and provide the reader with a detailed set of executable commands to implement commonly used algorithms for SQDT data processing.

Keywords: Diffusion coefficient; Mean square displacement; Quantum dot; Single particle tracking; Trajectory classification.
