We have developed various state-of-the-art atomic force microscope techniques including an ultra-low noise system with which we have demonstrated unprecedented resolution (90 pm) and force sensitivity (1 pN) in aqueous environments. These techniques have enabled us to explore a range of biological systems from well-defined single lipid bilayers through to complex natural adhesives deposited by multicellular organisms. I will highlight our work at these two extremes of complexity.
