Research Summary 

Members of the Tang-Biophysics laboratory are working various projects ranging from bacterial motility to using nanopores as virus identifiers and a means to study flexible rod-like biopolymers.  We utilize advanced experimental techniques, including traction force microscopy, nanopores, atomic force microscopy, as well as mathematical modelling and computer simulations.

Current research projects include:

Bacterial motility, including swimming in viscoelastic media, aerotaxis, and the switching behavior of flagellar motor.
