[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 2 Summer 2014 Workshop
28 Jun 2014 | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
In Day 2, the students start out by brainstorming a design for their biosensor and the shape that they will cut it in. The students start their first prototype and build throughout the video.This nanoBIO node workshop is a one week intensive high school Workshop on biosensors led by Kaustubh...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 1 Summer 2014 Workshop
26 Jun 2014 | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
In Day 1, the lecture starts out by discussing the three definitions of a biosensor. These definitions are: something that measures a physical process, something that measures a molecular signature of a process, or a sensor that uses biological materials that may or may not measure biological...
[Illinois] Cooperation and Construction: From Multicellularity to Eusociality
28 Apr 2014 | Contributor(s):: Corina Tarnita
The evolutionary trajectory of life on earth is one of increasing size and complexity. Yet the standard equations of evolutionary dynamics describe mutation and selection among similar organisms that compete on the same level of organization. I will try to outline a mathematical theory that...
[Illinois] Graphene Synthesis from Biochar using Wet Chemical Treatment Process
17 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Sriraam Chandrasekaran
Biochar is a major by-product from pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Biochar finds potential applications in soil amendment, carbon sequestration, super capacitors, adsorbents, etc. However, its applicability is limited by its properties such as low carbon content, low porosity, and surface...
