Our new review is out in ACS NANO.
We show exciting preliminary results of engineered 5hmC patterns on Lambda DNA. Individual molecules are stretched and imaged in silicon nano-channel arrays
Hi, I'm Yuval Ebenstein and Since August 2011 I have been putting together the NanoBioPhotonics research group in Tel-Aviv university. This blog is our presence on the web until we have a proper website. Unfortunately, I'm really bad at maintaining these things... but anyways:
We explore some exciting biological systems utilizing tools and reagents from the realm of nano-technology. We try learning new things about these systems by zooming in on individuals - single cells, single chromosomes and single molecules.
Research in the lab is highly multi and inter disciplinary and our team is composed of chemists, biologists and physicists who are interested in learning from each other and doing some great (but sometimes risky...) stuff at the very forefront of science.
If you would like to know more about our research or would like to join the group, please contact me at:

Optical detection of epigenetic marks: sensitive quantification and direct imaging of individual hydroxymethylcytosine bases
The first 100% independent work from our lab and the first of its kind observation of individual epigenetic modifications in genomic DNA. Just published in Chemical Communications. Check it out
We were very happy to be invited to write this short review for a special issue on bio-nano-technology in Current opinion in biotechnology. It really gave us the opportunity to see what was going on in the field and to refine our opinion on where this technology is going. Read the review here
