課程概述

Section 1: Principles of single-molecule techniques and analysis
- Optical microscopy
- Single molecule fluorescence and single pair FRET
- Optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers methods
- Other novel method development
- Single-molecule data analysis
- Laboratory tour of single-molecule lab

Section 2: Recent significant publications to illustrate how use single molecule methods are used to investigate biochemical mechanisms.

At the end of the second section, students are required to conduct a research project using single molecule methods to address biological mechanisms.
 

課程目標
This course will present an overview of current experimental state-of-art single molecule techniques used in chemical biology and biophysics. Emphasis will be on two areas: (1) novel single molecule instrumentation and measurement methods, and (2) application of single molecule methods to study the mechanisms of chemical biology processes.
