Mechanics of Life: From Biomolecules to Molecular Machines

June 11, 2007 – June 13, 2007

Location: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan


Organized by Alexei Tkachenko

Mechanical forces in living matter, biological motors, elastic properties of biomolecules are among the central themes of modern biophysics. On the one hand, single-molecule mechanical measurements are valuable tools for study of biomolecules. On the other hand, mechanical effects play a profound role in a wide variety of biological phenomena, ranging from gene regulation to cell motility. This workshop brings together theorists and experimentalist working on various problems in molecular biophysics, with a special emphasis on mechanical properties and mechanical forces in biomolecular systems, and their relationship to biological function.
