EXROP Projects: Carlos J. Bustamante

Carlos J. Bustamante


Carlos Bustamante’s laboratory develops and applies single-molecule manipulation methods, such as optical and magnetic tweezers, to characterize the dynamics and the mechanochemical properties of various molecular motors that interact with DNA, RNA, or proteins. His lab also uses and develops novel methods for superresolution microscopy to study the organization and function of protein complexes in cells.
