Single-Molecule Biophysics


CHIRLMIN JOO LAB

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