Lecture 10: Mutagenesis
0.0 out of 5 stars
10 Apr 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Paul R Selvin
Site-Directed Mutagenesis to Isolate and Mutate DNA (for FIONA)
Illinois Physics 498: Introduction to Biological Physics
07 Apr 2008 | Courses | Contributor(s): Paul R Selvin
We will apply simple yet powerful
ideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is the
inertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We will
begin with atoms,...

Ion Selectivity in Synthetic and Natural Channels
01 Apr 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Susan Rempe
Transport across membranes and nanopores can be characterized by static equilibrium properties as well as by nonequilibrium dynamic properties. For example, equilibrium selectivity properties of a...
Modeling (Semi) Unstructured Proteins
27 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Michael Colvin
The past century has seen tremendous progress in determining the biochemical and biophysical processes that constitute life. One exciting consequence of this understanding is the possibility of...
The Functional Protocell concept
24 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Jakobsson
We have invented and created the first prototype of the Functional Protocell.
We define the “functional protocell" as a nanoporous solid surrounded by a membrane. The cavities in the solid can...

25 Sep 2007 | Series | Contributor(s): Joe Ringgenberg, Jeffrey B. Neaton, Jeffrey C Grossman
The energy problem is one of the most important issues that science and technology has to solve.
The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Helios Project concentrates on renewable fuels, such...
MCW07 Silicon Based Nanopore Sensors for Detection of DNA Molecules
11 Sep 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Samir Iqbal, Demir Akin, Rashid Bashir
Solid-state nanopores have emerged as possible candidates for next-generation DNA sequencing devices. In this talk, we will review our recent work in development of solid-state nanopore channels...
Introduction to Self-Assembled Monolayers and Biosensors
06 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Michael Toole
Recent research concerning self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) focuses on tasks from fabrication of microelectronics to creating biosensors. This presentation will address the fundamental principles...
Oligodeoxyribonucleotide Association with Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
06 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jennifer McDonald
Commercially available single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) tend to aggregate as ropes and bundles during production making them of little use in many scientific and industrial applications. An...
Re-engineering a Healthy Eye Tissue to Restore Damaged Eyesight
06 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Margarita Shalaev
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that is the leading cause of blindness in the USA and Western Europe. It affects over one million people in the United States alone. One of...
SPMW A fresh look to amplitude-modulation AFM: Force minimization, interaction measurement, and the quest for high resolution
03 Jul 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Udo D. Schwarz
Frequency modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) has been able to deliver high-resolution atomic-scale images in ultrahigh vacuum for over one decade. In addition, there have been recent...
