Our open (single-molecule) microscopy project, the #miCube, is now on Github [link]! The page shows a detailed and updated overview of the components, some information on phasor-based SMLM, and many links to similar open hardware projects.
Pre-print: DNA polymerase β fingers movement revealed by single-molecule FRET suggests a partially closed conformation as a fidelity checkpoint
C. Fijen, M. Mahmoud, R. Kaup, J. Towle-Weicksel, J. Sweasy, and J. Hohlbein, bioRxiv, 2018 [link] The eukaryotic DNA polymerase β plays an important role in cellular DNA repair as it fills gaps in single nucleotide gapped DNA that result … Continue reading
The lab has a Ph.D. position titled “Super-resolution microscopy in foods” available! Click [here] for more details and to apply.
Meike joined the group for her BSc thesis and will work on DNA polymerase beta. Carel successfully defended his PhD thesis in March and decided to continue working on DNA polymerase beta by joining the Sweasy lab at Yale as … Continue reading
…who joined the group for an 6 week internship (Andreas) and a short capita selecta (Hans). Andreas will try unifying some fragmented software packages for in vivo single particle tracking. Hans will push the limits of our ultrafast pSMLM algorithm … Continue reading
Pre-print: Substrate conformational dynamics drive structure-specific recognition of gapped DNA by DNA polymerase
