  1. 1. Development of Next-Generation Optical Tweezers : The New Swiss Army Knife of Biophysical and Biomechanical Research

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : optical tweezers; optical fiber tweezers; optical fiber; optical trapping; manipulation; optical force; cell trapping; biophysical; physicochemical; biomechanical; research; next-generation; raman spectroscopy; holographic optical tweezers;

    Abstract : In a time when microorganisms are controlling the world, research in biology is more relevant than ever and this requires some powerful instruments. Optical tweezers use a focused laser beam to manipulate and probe objects on the nano- and microscale. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Effect of Using DMSO as a Cosolvent for Ligand Binding Studies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Biofysikalisk kemi

    Author : Simon Birgersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Galectins; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance; NMR; Biophysical Chemistry; Relaxation; CPMG; ITC; Biofysikalisk Kemi; Kärnmagnetisk resonans; Technology and Engineering; Chemistry; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : DMSO sees common application as a solvent for studies of synthetic molecules in biological systems, in fields such as drug design. Despite this, the possibility and nature of solvent interactions with both synthetic ligand and their target macromolecules is widely unexamined. READ MORE

  3. 3. Recombinant expression of the cowpea chlorotic mottle virus

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Amanda Willas; [2019]
    Keywords : Biokemi; Biochemistry; Viruskapsid; Viruscaspid; CCMV; Chemistry;

    Abstract : All viruses are composed of both genetic material and a capsid. The capsid is composed by identical protein subunits and the purpose is protection of the genetic material, in this case RNA. READ MORE

  4. 4. Collective behaviour in suspensions of pushers and pullers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Biofysikalisk kemi

    Author : Shan Anjum; [2019]
    Keywords : biophysics; active matter; collective motion; microswimmers; biohydrodynamics; non-equilibrium physics; low reynolds number physics; biophysical chemistry; biofysikalisk kemi; Physics and Astronomy; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Microswimmer is a term that denotes small selfpropelling agents, such as bacteria, algea or artificial robots. Depending on the flow field they set up they can be categorized into two classes: pushers (e.g. E. READ MORE

  5. 5. Constructing supported lipid bilayers from native cell membranes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Biofysikalisk kemi

    Author : Tommy Dam; [2018]
    Keywords : T cells; Model membrane systems; Supported lipid bilayers; SLB; biophysical chemistry; biofysikalisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The aim of this MSc-project was to investigate whether it is possible to incorporate native cell membrane components from Jurkat T cells into supported lipid bilayers, SLBs, to produce a model membrane system better resembling the native cell membranes in T cells. The procedure of forming native-like SLBs (nSLB) was adapted from an existing protocol and is done through the deposition of hybrid vesicles onto a cleaned glass slide. READ MORE
