Overcoming Biomass Recalcitrance by Combining Genetically Modified Switchgrass and Cellulose Solvent-Based Lignocellulose Pretreatment
Decreasing lignin content of plant biomass by genetic engineering is believed to mitigate biomass recalcitrance and improve saccharification efficiency of plant biomass. In this study, we compared two different pretreatment ...
Risk Map of Cholera Infection for Vaccine Deployment: The Eastern Kolkata Case
Background Despite advancement of our knowledge, cholera remains a public health concern. During March-April 2010, a large cholera outbreak afflicted the eastern part of Kolkata, India. The quantification of importance ...
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. ...
Summarizing cellular responses as biological process networks
Background Microarray experiments can simultaneously identify thousands of genes that show significant perturbation in expression between two experimental conditions. Response networks, computed through the integration ...
Dynamics of photoexcited carriers and spins in InAsP ternary alloys
(AIP Publishing, 2013-06)
The recent rapid progress in the field of spintronics involves extensive measurements of carrier and spin relaxation dynamics in III-V semiconductors. In addition, as the switching rates in devices are pushed to higher ...
Computational approaches for discovery of common immunomodulators in fungal infections: towards broad-spectrum immunotherapeutic interventions
Background Fungi are the second most abundant type of human pathogens. Invasive fungal pathogens are leading causes of life-threatening infections in clinical settings. Toxicity to the host and drug-resistance are two major ...
Measurement and modeling of transcriptional noise in the cell cycle regulatory network
(Landes Bioscience, 2013-10-01)
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 ...
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 ...
