The Nanobiomechanics group is focused on atomic-force microscopy to study the mechanical features of proteins. The group is led by Dr. Perez-Jimenez and uses advanced molecular-biology techniques and cutting-edge force spectrometers to investigate the role of mechanical forces in biology.

Nanobiomechanics News

The prestigious journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology has published a piece of research conducted by CIC nanoGUNE researchers. They have experimentally reconstructed titin fragments from their common ancestors and measured their mechanochemical properties. They have discovered a correlation between the properties of the protein measured on a nanoscale and animal size.
