Investigating dielectric properties of different stages of syngeneic murine ovarian cancer cells
(American Institute of Physics, 2013-01-01)
In this study, the electrical properties of four different stages of mouse ovarian surface epithelial (MOSE) cells were investigated using contactless dielectrophoresis (cDEP). This study expands the work from our previous ...
Sequence verification of synthetic DNA by assembly of sequencing reads
Gene synthesis attempts to assemble user-defined DNA sequences with base-level precision. Verifying the sequences of construction intermediates and the final product of a gene synthesis project is a critical part of the ...
Toxicity of Silver Nanoparticles at the Air-Liquid Interface
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-01-01)
Silver nanoparticles are one of the most prevalent nanomaterials in consumer products. Some of these products are likely to be aerosolized, making silver nanoparticles a high priority for inhalation toxicity assessment. ...
