  • Condensed Matter Seminar: "Revisiting and Repurposing the Double Helix"

    David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

    Taekjip Ha, Johns Hopkins University

    DNA is an iconic molecule that forms a double helical structure, providing the basis for genetic inheritance, and its physical properties have been studied for decades. In this talk, I will present evidence that sequence and methylation dependent physical properties of DNA such as flexibility and self-association may be important for biological functions [1, 2]. In addition, I will present a new application of DNA where mechanical modulations of cell behavior can be studied at the single molecule level using rupturable DNA tethers [3].
