Webinar on Phase separation research using holotomography (HT).

The following topics were covered:

· Brief overview of subcellular organelles and biomolecular condensates

· Conventional optical methods for the study of phase separation

· How to observe and quantify phase separation using HT


Speaker: So Young Choi (Research Assistant Professor, Dept. Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at KAIST)
