Our laboratory develops and applies novel methods of single-molecule manipulation and detection, such as optical tweezers, single-molecule fluorescence microscopy, ‘fleezers’ (fluorescence-force hybrid instrument), and nanopore.
These techniques are used to understand:
• DNA packaging into bacteriophage Φ29 capsids
• Translation and Protein Folding
• Protein degradation by ClpXP
• Catalysis-enhanced enzyme diffusion
We are affiliated with the departments of Molecular and Cell Biology, Physics, and Chemistry as well as the Physical Biosciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Feel free to attend our group meetings to learn more about our work.
