Host: SBS

Professor Cees Dekker
Professor Cees Dekker

Speaker: Professor Cees Dekker, Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands


Nanotechnology offers fantastic opportunities to contribute to biology. Professor Cees Dekker will present some recent examples from his lab where nanofabrication and single-molecule tools are used to unravel the biology of cells down to the single-molecule level.

During this talk, he will specifically focus on his recent results on real-time imaging of DNA loop extrusion by condensin; solid state nanopores for manipulating single DNA and protein molecules; and from pattern formation of biomolecules in shaped bacteria towards the bottom up assembly of synthetic cells.
