  4. [Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 3 Summer 2014 Workshop

    26 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao

    In Day 3, the students continue building their first models of the biosensors. Once completed, they test out their newly-built biosensor with spoiled milk and evaluate their design. The students then start designing their second prototype. At the end, then discussed and reevaluated their...

  5. [Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 4 Summer 2014 Workshop

    26 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao

    In Day 4, the second prototype biosensors continued to be tested. The thought process of building an effective biosensor was then discussed. There were five steps taken: the design objective, design criteria, first prototype, lessons learned, and second prototype. Each of these steps was then...

  6. [Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 5 Summer 2014 Workshop

    26 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao

    In Day 5, each group gave a presentation about the biosensor they had created. They discussed the design objective, design criteria, first prototype, lessons learned, and the second prototype. In trying to depict their biosensor as the best, they learned what is sought from the market when...

  7. [Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 2 Summer 2014 Workshop

    26 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao

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...

  8. [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...

  9. [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...
