Biophysics

Our research illuminates new physical tools to better understand biological systems. One recent CCB discovery grants the ability to directly observe gene expression in live cells. We also investigate the interaction of proteins and nucleic acids, the folding of proteins, chromophores, biofilms, and the hydrophobic effect in water.
