Jens Sobek's Biography



Jens Sobek, Research Scientist, University of Zurich

Jens Sobek is research scientist at the Functional Genomics Center in Zurich. He studied Organic and Photochemistry at the Technical University of Merseburg (Germany), and received a Ph.D. at the Free University of Berlin in 1996 for his work with Prof. H.
Kurreck on photoinduced electron transfer in model systems of photosynthesis. As postdoctoral associate, he studied kinetics of elemental processes in electron transfer and
polymerization, resp., at Graz University of Technology (Austria) and University of
Zurich (Switzerland). Later, he joint the company Microsynth (Switzerland) to develop
oligonucleotide microarrays. In 2002, he changed to the newly founded Functional
Genomics Center in Zurich working on microarrays, surface-plasmon resonance, and
single-molecule experiments.

Drop drying is a key factor in a wide range of technical applications, including spotted microarrays. The applied nL liquid volume provides specific reaction conditions for the immobilization of molecules on a chemically modified surface. I report on the influence of nL and ┬ÁL liquid drop volumes on the process of molecule immobilization and compare the results obtained with the situation in liquid solution. The data reveal a fundamental relationship between drop drying and surface chemistry on the one hand, and the selectivity of oligonucleotides, our model system, reacting with the surface on the other.
