Study using CTFM Published in Nature Communications

A new paper using the correlative optical tweezers-fluorescence microscopy (CTFM) technology has recently been published in Nature Communications. King, Peterman & Wuite show in "Unravelling the structural plasticity of stretched DNA under torsional constraint" that in torsionally constraint DNA concomitant basepair melting and helical unwinding can occur at forces >~50…

AFS™ Featured in Nature Methods

The novel method of using acoustics for single molecule manipulation and spectroscopy was published in the January 2015 edition of Nature methods. Force spectroscopy has become an indispensable tool to unravel the structural and mechanochemical properties of biomolecules. Here we extend the force spectroscopy toolbox with an acoustic manipulation device that…
