Description

"Life at the Single Molecule Level"

Abstract: DNA exists as single molecules in individual cells. Consequently gene expression is stochastic. Single­molecule gene expression experiments in live single cells have allowed quantitative description and mechanistic interpretations. The fact that there are 46 different individual DNA molecules (chromosomes) in a human cell dictates that genomic variations occur stochastically and cannot be synchronized among individual cells. Probing such genomic variations requires single­cell and single­molecule measurements, which have been made possible recently, opening opportunities to investigate and to diagnose cancer, and to avoid genetic disorders in newborns.
