An engaging single-molecule workshop organized by LUMICKS took place at the University of Cambridge. During the workshop, the participants performed state-of-the-art experiments to examine DNA-protein interactions and DNA mechanics in real-time and at the single-molecule level, using the C-Trap® optical tweezers – fluorescence microscopy system.
Next to the practical sessions, Matt Newton, a researcher from the lab of Prof. David Rueda (Imperial College London), presented the progress of their research on target activity of CRISPR/Cas9 using a C-Trap®. Moreover, Prof. Ross Waller (the University of Cambridge) showed his latest findings on the structure and organization of chromatin.
We would like to thank the speakers for presenting their work, the participants for joining us, and the lab of Prof. Luca Pellegrini and the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge for hosting the workshop!
