Carlos J. Bustamante

Dr. Bustamante is a professor of molecular cell biology, physics, and chemistry, and the Raymond & Beverley Sackler Chair of Biophysics at the University of California, Berkeley.

Carlos Bustamante’s laboratory develops and applies single-molecule manipulation and detection methods, such as optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers, and single molecule fluorescence microscopy to characterize the dynamics and the mechanochemical properties of various molecular motors that interact with DNA, RNA, or proteins. His lab also uses and develops novel methods for superresolution microscopy to study the organization and function of protein complexes in cells.
