The level of proteins is highly regulated at different stages: activators may change the affinity of RNApol for specific promoters,
small non coding RNA molecules can bind mRNA (and facilitate the recruitment of RNAses) or bind RBS sequences (and alter translation). Using single-molecule
techniques, we study fundamental biological processes and their implication in the regulation
of gene expression. In addition, we investigate the interaction of intercalators with DNA and how they affect its structure.
