Hi, I'm Yuval Ebenstein and Since August 2011 I have been leading the NanoBioPhotonics research group in Tel-Aviv university. 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. I'll try updating news here as well but....
*************We now have a real website*************

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

  1. This is an interesting piece of work. But, there is not much information available on the results obtained using DNA extracted from mouse brain and kidney tissues (other than the figures 1C and D. Is it an ongoing work or is there some difficulty in the process as such that makes it less efficient?

    Have a good day!!!
