    Professor Michelle Wang

    Professor Michelle Wang leads LASSP's Single Molecule Biophysics Lab, which is unique in its abilities to manipulate "one molecule at a time" and measure the forces on that molecule. One role of the lab is to make biophysical measurements, such as studies of the packing of DNA in the nucleosome and studies of the molecules involved in gene expression and regulation. Another role is to develop instruments for molecular manipulation. "The lab is pioneering a new technique called angular optical ...
