The functional state of the genome is determined by its interactions with proteins that bind, modify, and move along the DNA. To determine the positions and binding strength of proteins localized on DNA we have developed a combined magnetic and optical tweezers apparatus that allows for both sensitive and label-free detection. A DNA loop, that...

In E. coli homologous recombination, a filament of RecA protein formed on DNA searches and pairs a homologous sequence within a second DNA molecule with remarkable speed and fidelity. Here, we directly probe the strength of the two-molecule interactions involved in homology search and recognition using dual-molecule manipulation, combining...
