Abstract: Experiments on single cells have the potential to uncover information that would not be possible to obtain with traditional biological techniques, which only reflect the average behavior of a population of cells. In the averaging process, information regarding heterogeneity and cellular dynamics, that may give rise to a nondeterministic behavior at the population level, is lost. In this thesis I have demonstrated how optical tweezers, microfluidics and fluorescence microscopy can be combine... more
