Speaker: Kevin Whitley Department: University of Illionois at Urbana -Champain Subject: Disrupting ultrashort nucleic acid duplex with mechanical force Location: Bionanoscience Department, TU Delft Date: 30-06-2017 Author: Mirte Golverdingen Kevin Whitley did research to the hybridization kinetics of DNA under force. He tried to understand the transition state of nucleic acid hybridization. Hybridization is used … Continue reading Disrupting ultrashort nucleic acid duplex with mechanical force
Speaker: Fransesca Mattiroli Department: Lugi Lab, University of Colorado Boulder Subject: Evolution and assembly of eukaryotic Chromatin Location: TU Delft, Bionanoscience department Date: 10-02-2017 Author: Mirte Golverdingen Fransesca Mattiroli’s research is focussed on the DNA packaging units called nucleosomes. These structures organize DNA in the eukaryotic cell nucleus. Nucleosomes are formed by an octameric … Continue reading Evolution and Assembly of Eukaryotic Chromatin
Speaker: Cees Dekker Department: Bionanoscience Subject: Nanotechnology for biophysics: from single molecules towards synthetic cells Location: Lecture room E (TU Delft) Date: 09-02-2017 Kristian Blom After six months of following theoretical physics and astronomy courses for my minor, I was looking forward to hear something about nanobiology again. Therefore I took the opportunity to visit … Continue reading Nanotechnology for biophysics: from single molecules towards synthetic cells
Speaker: Wouter de Laat Department: Bionanoscience Subject: 3D mammalian genome organization and function Location: TU Delft Date: 11-2-16 Author: Hielke Walinga Our DNA consists of long strands of bases that appear to have no function at all. Only 3 % of the DNA is actually consisting genes. A long time researchers thought only the genes … Continue reading 3D mammalian genome organization and function
Single replication machines at work: The coordination of daughter strand synthesis By Karl Duderstradt (van Oijen lab, University of Groningen) One of the most important events a cell has to undergo before it will divide is DNA replication. In this event, the amount of genomic DNA is doubled by taking the two strands apart and … Continue reading Coordination of daughter strand synthesis
