Researchers establish a benchmark for accurate determination of internal dimensions within individual molecules A worldwide study involving 20 laboratories has established and standardized a method to measure exact distances within individual biomolecules, down to the scale of one millionth of the width of a human hair. The new method represents a major improvement of a… Continue reading Nature Methods Paper Published
After a busy summer, the new academic year is upon us. And with it brings four new recruits to the lab: Ben Ambrose (starting his PhD), Tristan Johnston-Wood (MChem), James Piggin (MChem) and Emily Evans (MChem). All will be spending a day or two adjusting to life in the Craggs Lab (and watching all the… Continue reading Academic year 2017/18
Today we, or rather as @msdillingham pointed out, James, John and Jon, started to rebuild our single-molecule confocal FRET microscope in our brand new, climate controlled lab space. Hopefully, due to the simple, robust design, it will be pretty straightforward to put back together! We will be videoing the whole process and making available a… Continue reading Modular single-molecule FRET microscope – take 2!
