    The first NCN Student Workshop was held April 6-7, 2005. This workshop was designed to give students in the program a background about NCN activities, and to hear from them how NCN can better serve their needs in the future.

  5. What is a Nanometer?

    02 Apr 2005 | | Contributor(s):: EPICS LSPM Team

    Join Laura and Martin on a wild ride through the milliworld and the microworld to reach the nanoworld. Along the way, they discover how small a nanometer truly is.

  6. Nano/Bio Connection

    02 Apr 2005 | | Contributor(s):: EPICS LSPM Team

    Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular assembly techniques.

  7. Computer-Aided Analysis and Design of Bio-molecules

    10 Mar 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Jaydeep Bardhan

    Computer simulation of bio-molecules has become a valuable tool for the pharmaceutical industry, promising not only the potential to predict binding affinities for trial drugs, but also the ability to probe molecular interactions in ways that lab experiments cannot. This seminar will present one...

  8. Nanotechnology 501 Lecture Series

    22 Feb 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck (editor), Mark Lundstrom (editor), Joseph M. Cychosz (editor)

    Welcome to Nanotechnology 501, a series of lectures designed to provide an introduction to nanotechnology. This series is similar to our popular lecture series Nanotechnology 101, but it is directed at the graduate students and professionals.

  15. Bioinformatics and Systems Biology: At the Crossroads of Biology, Engineering, and Computation

    08 Oct 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Shankar Subramaniam

    Traditional biological research has relied on a "deconstructive" mode where piece-wise analysis of the components of complex systems was carried out in detail. The genome projects have spurred the discovery of new genes/molecules to add to the existing inventory of "parts" that make up living...

  16. Interfacing Carbon Nanotubes with Biological Systems: From Biosensors to Cellular Transporters

    21 Oct 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Hongjie Dai

    This talk will discuss two relatively new topics in carbon nanotube research. The first is nanotubes for chemical and biological sensors, an exploration motivated by the ultra high surface area of single walled carbon nanotubes and the need for label free electronic detectors for a wide range of...

  17. Construction of an Imitating Nano-motor Driven by Six ATP-binding RNAs of Bacterial Virus phi29

    02 Dec 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Peixuan Guo

    A switchable imitating DNA-packaging motor was constructed in the laboratory. The motor is driven by six synthetic ATP-binding pRNA (packaging RNA) molecules that bind to the connector and function in a manner similar to the driving of a bolt with a hex nut. Conformational change and sequential...
