High resolution tracking of kinesin motors using germanium nanospheres

Advisor: Erik Schäffer

PhD Program: International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) 'From Molecules to Organisms'
Location: University of Tübingen - Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP)

Project description
You will work with kinesins and microtubule associated proteins that are involved in transport or cell division.  Using purified components and reconstituted assays, you will perform ultraresolution tracking, single-molecule localization and force measurements to decipher how these molecular machines fulfil their cellular function.
