    This image shows a single DNA molecule being unzipped using laser tweezers. The lasers act like 'tractor beams', pulling the micron-sized beads biochemically linked to the ends of the molecule, toward the optical focal point. By moving the laser beams apart, we apply tension to the ends of the...

    Folding is the process by which biomolecules spontaneously self-assemble into specific, complex, three-dimensional structures from simple one-dimensional polypeptide chains. Folding is a critical process in biology as there exists a tight link between the structure and function of biomolecules,...
