Welcome to the KochLab wiki!
We are a research lab at the University of New Mexico, in the Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM) and Physics Department. We are experimental biophysicists, which to us means we use our skills and talents as physical scientists to provide new answers for important questions in cellular and molecular biology. For example, developing new techniques to probe protein-DNA interactions by unzipping single DNA molecules with optical tweezers. You can learn more about our interests on our Research page.
In addition, we are committed to being open scientists and sharing our results, methods, and ideas as quickly, clearly, and openly as possible. However, being a very new lab, we are still learning how to do this and are well behind the curve set by others at OpenWetWare. Therefore, we welcome any requests for information or improvements to add to the wiki, see our Contact page.
We're all over the internet

Andy Maloney 03:33, 12 June 2009 (EDT): KochLab now has it's own 690 nm laser tweezers! Thanks Larry for suggesting the visible laser tweezer technology. And thanks to both Larry and Anthony for helping me build the knowledge to make this thing. I never would have been able ..→
- Ramalldf 02:28, 29 May 2009 (EDT):I just noticed that the Koch lab OWW page finally surpassed the Caltech Koch lab when you google 'koch lab'! I know that's not the biggest milestone, but I'm tired on working on this proposal and I'm bored!
Anthony Salvagno 12:47, 13 May 2009 (EDT): For information pertaining to the KochLab symposium (1st ever) please see here.
