Force Measurement and Manipulation in Biological Microscopy
University of North Carolina
Chapel Hill, NC USA
Learn the theory and techniques of measuring forces in biological samples in this course presented by Computer Integrated Systems for Microscopy and Manipulation, an NIH NIBIB Biotechnology Resource Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Attendees will use AFM, laser tweezers, and 3-D magnetic force systems on live biological samples, learn the theory and applications of force measurement, and receive an overview of mechanisms of force generation in biology and consequences at molecular and cellular level.
