SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] Single-molecule DNA imaging
Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano.
Gaurav Goyal from Chemical Biology Lab, Department of Biology and Biological Engineering will talk about Single-molecule DNA imaging.
DNA carries the
information for organisms to develop, survive and reproduce. The knowledge of
DNA dynamics in the cells, its interaction with proteins, and regulation of
information flow are fundamental to our understanding of this important
molecule of life.
In this talk, I will discuss how we achieve studying DNA at
the single-molecule level and how it has advanced our understanding of
molecular interactions. I will also discuss optical mapping of DNA and our
current approaches to detect genes and structural variations in the DNA of
All seminar talks will be divided in to
two parts, where the first part consists in a pure overview over the field, and
is supposed to be held on a generally accessible level (15 min). The second
part will be more technical (15-20 minutes).
In case you are not sure yet, whether you want to
attend or not, we have prepared a decision tree that might help you!
