Single-molecule experiments have provided fresh perspectives to questions such as how proteins fold to specific conformations from highly heterogeneous structures, how signal transductions take place on the molecular level, and how proteins behave in membranes and live cells. This book focuses mainly on three experimental approaches: single-molecule fluorescence based mainly on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and diffracted X-ray tracking (DXT), and their applications to important biological phenomena. In addition, discussion is provided on the theoretical progress in the single-molecule data analyses. For students and professionals in chemical physics and physical chemistry from academia, government, and industries.

Masaru Kawakami is an Associate Professor at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) School of Material Science. He specializes in biophysics, single-molecule measurement, protein folding, and structural biology, and his research focuses on single-molecule dynamics of biomolecules. Satoshi Takahashi is a Professor at the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials, Tohoku University, Japan. His research focuses on protein folding and functional dynamics. Haw Yang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University. His current research focuses on high-resolution quantitative single-molecule protein dynamics and real-time 3D single-particle tracking spectroscopy. Robert J. Silbey is the Class of 1942 Professor of Chemistry at MIT. His research involves theoretical studies of single-molecule spectroscopy at low temperatures, energy and electron transfer and relaxation in molecular aggregates, the optical and electronic properties of conjugated oligomers and polymers, and the transport of charge in organic systems. Series Editors Stuart A. Rice received his master's and doctorate from Harvard University and was a junior fellow at Harvard for two years before joining the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1957, where he is currently the Frank P. Hixon Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus. Aaron R. Dinner received his bachelor's degree and doctorate from Harvard University, after which he conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford and the University of California, Berkeley.
