Cell Organization & Cell Motility: Part 2: Force Generation by Actin Assembly: Theories and Experiments (46:16)

submitted by: scivee-team

The second part is devoted to understanding how the polymerization of actin can produce, which is a current area of research in our laboratory. Here, I cover theories for how polymerization might be used to produce forces, and our efforts to test these models using optical traps, atomic force microscopes, and nanofabricated devices.

Single molecule analyses of DNA in environmental microbes

submitted by: dougramsey
Comprehensive characterization of genomic composition in environmental microbial samples has been challenging, because the majority of microorganisms are difficult to culture. Additional challenges include a high degree of genetic diversity between and within species, various level of relative abundance and ubiquitous presence of cell-free DNA. Single cells or single molecules genomic assays hold great promise for tackling these challenges. Recent progresses in the developments of these...
