  •  S. Marion from Institute of physics published in Nano Lett. (IF=13.6 in 2014.) with our EPFL collaborators prof. A. Rađenović and R. Bulushev. The work “Relevance of the drag force during controlled translocation of a DNA-protein complex through a glass nanocapillary presents results of controlled translocation of individual DNA bound proteins with an optical tweezer trough 20-100 nm sized capillaries. The authors identified the contribution from electroosmotic flow in measured effective charge densities of DNA-protein complexes. This work represents the first step towards localizing binding sites of different proteins on DNA by nanopore methods. S. Marion contributed to the article trough interpretation and theoretical modeling of experimental results.
