Free Online AFM Seminars Sponsored by Agilent Technologies

Attend an Atomic Force Microscopy e-Seminar!

Agilent Technologies is proud to announce a brand new series of AFM e-Seminars this spring! These one-hour live events will be led by some of the most prestigious scientists in their respective fields. The unique Agilent e-Seminar format includes an open Q&A session in which all online attendees are welcome to query the presenters.

Seeing the Nanostructure of DNA and Proteins
April 21, 2009 at 3PM GMT

Wael Mandouh, PhD University of Aarhus, Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO)

Designing & Imaging DNA Nanostructure
We investigate the self-assembly of artificial DNA structures and arrays into predesigned nanoarchitectures on surfaces in order to characterize and explore their basic properties by using scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and atomic force microscope (AFM). This presentation will focus on the unique ability of scanning probe microscope (SPM) technique to visualize self-assembled DNA/RNA nucleobases at the liquid/solid interface by STM with submolecular resolution and more complex two-dimensional (2D) DNA nanostructures by AFM. Wael will also demonstrate a user-friendly software package that iNANO developed for designing DNA origami structures and demonstrate its use by the design of a dolphin-like DNA origami structure

Elucidating Structure and Function of Proteins with AFM
Proteins, among the most essential parts of organisms, have structural or mechanical functions & are important agents in cell signaling and cell adhesion, or act as enzymes in catalytic processes. The high mechanical sensitivity makes the AFM a perfect tool for imaging proteins in their native environment and thereby resolving fine structural details. This e-Seminar will show examples of high resolution imaging of proteins under physiological conditions, including multi-frequency techniques, as well as force spectroscopy for measuring intra- and inter-molecular interactions leading to kinetic and thermodynamic information of protein-related systems.

Join us for one or more of these exciting live events!


Agilent e-Seminars feature a user-friendly, web-based conferencing system that allows you and your colleagues to take part in real-time, interactive presentations on subjects that are pertinent to your work.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
