Protein-DNA interactions are the key for cell regulation, including cell division and adaptation.
Interdisciplinary interactions with other fields of research are strongly supported by a unique culture of collegiality as well as by a number initiatives facilitating the setup and maintenance of collaborations.
For example, DRESDEN-concept runs a number of online platforms towards the synergistic usage of equipment (Technology Platform) and knowledge (Dresden Science Calendar).
We developed methods to study folding and unfolding of membrane proteins in lipidic environments using single-molecule FRET.
We aim to dissect fundamental principles from the highly complex process of structure formation and transition into the anisotropic environment of lipid bilayers.
Biophysical research in Dresden offers a tremendous width in both, research topics and methods.
