Welcome to the single-molecule biophysics lab at Oregon State University. We study the biophysical mechanisms of kinesin-based cellular processes by developing and applying powerful molecular and biophysical methods including DNA nanotechnology, high-precision single-molecule imaging, and light-based control of single molecules. Kinesins are microtubule-based motor proteins that utilize chemical energy of ATP hydrolysis to generate force and directional movement inside cells.
