For the past few days, Pranav’s been hard at work collecting DNA tweezing data. The first set of experiments revolve around DNA overstretching (which I’ll explain later, but you should feel free to google it). We’re planning on analyzing force differences between DNA in D2O and H2O through overstretching. Hopefully eventually we’ll be working towards DNA unzipping, but that is less likely given our time constraints (graduation!!). Regardless there are a lot of interesting studies to be done here.
