Biological Matter

Molecules like DNA and proteins organize and regulate life. We study the physical processes that govern the function of these molecules by resolving the structures of sometimes disordered proteins, the interactions between molecules like histones and DNA, and the dynamic organization of the cytoskeleton and the cell membrane. Physical techniques include theoretical modelling, Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), single-molecule microscopy and force spectroscopy.
