Genomic diagnostics beyond the sequence

PI, Scientific Director, Enzymatic DNA barcoding

Principal Investigator, NanoBioPhotonics Lab, Tel Aviv University


Yuval is a faculty member of the Department of Chemical Physics, School of Chemistry, Tel-Aviv University, Israel. In 2011 he set-up the NanoBioPhotonix Lab, which focuses on the following research topics - Single-molecule genomics by optical mapping, Development of epigenetic analysis technologies, and High-throughput single molecule detection.

Group leader, Westerlund, DNA Mapping in Nanochannels

Associate Professor, Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden


Fredrik joined Chalmers University of Technology in 2010. 

His lab focuses on using nanofluidic tools for studying single molecules or single particles. Of particular focus is studies of DNA where the lab is mainly working with optical DNA mapping, DNA-protein interactions and polymer physics of confined DNA.

Group leader, Solid-state optical nanopores

Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology


Dr. Meller is the principle investigator of the "Single-Molecule Biophysics and Nano-biotechnology" lab located at the Lokey center for Life-Sciences & Engineering. His lab employs various single molecule methods, such as nanopore sensors and fluorescence microscopy (FRET) to study bimolecular function in vitro and in live cells. Specific areas of interest are: protein translation initiation and control, epigenetic, and early detection of biological markers for biomedical applications.

Group Leader, Single Molecule Ggenome Analysis

Co-founder, CEO & President of Genomic Vision


Aaron Bensimon founded Genomic Vision in 2004, before he spent 15 years as a researcher at the Pasteur Institut in Paris where he discovered the DNA "molecular combing" procedure, while he was the head of the Genome Stability Unit. Genomic Vision is providing molecular combing and Genomic Morse Code analysis for both research and diagnostics of genetic diseases.



Group Leader, Methyltransferase based DNA labelling

Lecturer, School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham


Robert joined the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham in the summer of 2014.

His lab focuses on the application of the DNA methyltransferase enzymes as tools for biotechnology and on single-molecule and super-resolution imaging at the interface between chemistry and biology.
