DNA Node Meeting at LMU Munich:

Prof. Jan Lipfert (LMU Munich) gave a talk about his current research:

Before joining the LMU in the fall of 2013 as a professor for experimental biophysics, Jan worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Nynke Dekkers lab at TU Delft where he developed novel magnetic tweezer instruments for single-molecule studies of torque and twist and applied them to investigate the properties and dynamics of DNA, RNA, and nucleo-protein filaments. In Munich he plans to use a combination of X-ray scattering, magnetic tweezers and other single molecule techniques as well as computer simulations to probe the structure, mechanics, and biological interactions of macromolecules, in particular of functional nucleic acids.
