CCeMMP Seminar Series – Dr. Lisanne Spenkelink – March 2024

The paradigm of cellular systems as deterministic machines has long guided our understanding of biology. Advancements in technology and methodology, however, have revealed a world of stochasticity, challenging the notion of determinism. Lisanne will highlight how single-molecule visualisation has helped reveal this stochasicity, using the DNA replication system as an example. She will show that this stochasitc behaviour has important consequences for downstream molecular pathways. Finally, she will show how they use this knowledge and their single-molecule methods, in the development of novel single-molecule diagnostics tools.
