The main purpose of establishing the Single-Molecule Biology Core (SMBC) laboratory is to provide a user-friendly platform that bridges the gap between biology and biophysics. The biophysical experiments that are coordinated by the SMBC may be applied to many of the various interdisciplinary areas within Academia Sinica. The service encompasses several functions, including protein purification, determining the physical chemistry properties of fluorescence molecules, single-cell or single-molecule imaging, and probing the interactions between single molecules. Facilities for the SMBC have been adapted from an academician, Dr. Tao-Shih Hsieh's laboratory and are described below. The SMBC aims to maintain all of the unique facilities that were established by Dr. Hsieh and to provide a continued source of information, expertise, and service, which will allow researchers with complete or limited knowledge of these techniques to apply the methods to their research.

Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy has become firmly established as a key technique in the investigation of molecular interactions at or near the cell surface. Hence, numerous applications are possible with this instrument, including:

  • Single Molecule Spectroscopy/Detection
  • Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP)
  • Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
  • Cell Imaging
  • Calcium Imaging
