Bio-experiments

  • Studies of cellular properties and dynamics

    We are presently starting work on microrheology inside cells using colloidal probes – more inputs will come to this page shortly! The rotation-translation coupling of Brownian motion to probe asymmetry of cells will also be extended further soon. Avijit will be working in this area.

  • Raman Optical Tweezers

    These experiments are still in their infancy, but we must say that we have been struggling a lot over the last few years to get a Raman signal from our trap! We did not have good filters before, and now that we have some, it seems that the laser may be an issue - changing lasers and trying! Subhrokoli is working on this.

  • Studying the effects of RNA-protein interactions

    A project still in the concept stage. Looking for collaborators!
