A review of recent results concerning
biological, microbiological and medical applications of scanning probe
microscopy obtained in Joint SPM Group is presented. Special attention
is paid to high resolution vizualization of nucleic acids, proteins , bacterial
and animal cells. Emphasis is done on the in situ observation of dynamical
changes in biological systems. The examples of protein crystallization
and conformation changes of DNA in solutions are shown.
The main aims of a new Open Learning Program based on SPM measurements
"Internet Outlook into the Microworld: from Atoms and Molecules to Living
Cells" are discussed.
