Hermann Gaub visiting us at the end of November; breakfast at home.
Hermann listening to Anne-Sophie Mutter with my vacuum tube amplifier; awesome sound!
Jürgen Hornow from L&N explaining how to use the AFS to my class in Stellenbosch, South Africa; November 2013. Osama (from Libya), standing with the brown shirt, made the first awesome recording of ubiquitin unfolding; a first in Africa!!
The fantastic4 students at the workshop in Cape Town getting beautiful traces of polyprotein unfolding and force dependency. From left to right: Aditya (India), Abimbola (Nigeria), Maryse (Congo) and Yolanda (Ecuador)

Raul and Sergi at the beach in Biarritz!
Sergi lecturing about mechanical unfolding.
Raul lecturing about disulfide bond reduction by enzymes
Its all about pulling here
Aghh.....a sawtooth-pattern with unfolding and reduction events. Who did this? Only force-clamp allowed.
Here it goes......best of luck
Hmmm, Raul said to turn the big red knob and not to touch the rest...........
Daily student report: Jorg debates whether he got a good folding trace, or not.
Can't make everyone happy all the time
