Research Interests

Gene expression is the vital path that converts DNA information into functional proteins. Our group studies mechanisms and machines of gene expression using single-molecule biophysical methods and biochemistry. We observe single biomachines in real time, both "in vitro" and inside living cells. We also develop single-molecule fluorescence methods, instruments, assays and DNA-based biosensors.
