Preparing DNA or microtubule AFM samples
educational validator: the Amherst College
written by Ashley Carter
Atomic force microscopes (AFMs) are commonplace in research laboratories and have recently been priced for educational use. We have designed several biophysical experiments for these educational AFMs that could be completed in a 3-hour undergraduate laboratory. Many of these experiments require students to image either microtubules or DNA and determine their polymer properties or the stretching force on the molecules. In this workshop, we will show you how to make DNA samples and how to perform the biophysical experiments.

Presented at the 2015 AAPT Summer Meeting,
W42: Advanced Labs Workshop.
