Single Molecule Dynamics of Proteins
Project Description

Three single-molecule biophysicists have received Nobel prize in Chemistry for achieving single-molecule detection and super-resolution microscopy. Our lab is very interested in single-molecule protein dynamics such as how single motor proteins move along actin filaments and how single molecules change their confirmation during stimulation. We will study the single-molecule dynamics using fluorescence resonance energy transfer(FRET).
