Single-Molecule Biophysics


CHIRLMIN JOO LAB

  • Using cutting-edge single-molecule fluorescence tools, we investigate how small RNA mediates gene silencing (RNA interference) and anti-viral defense (CRISPR immunity and DNA interference). We apply the mechanistic understanding to genome editing. 
  • We develop single-molecule protein sequencing techniques for advanced proteomics analysis. This research is done in partnership within TU Delft (Dekker, Eelkema, Meyer) and with Groningen Univ (Maglia) & Wageningen UR (de Ridder). See a conference we organized in 2017.
