Constructing Silver Nanoparticles

Each year, over two million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed, which is greater than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. Therefore, prevention of skin cancer from the harmful effects of UV remains a priority area of research.

Platelet-Dependent Killing of C. albicans

There are around 150,000-400,000 platelets per microliter of blood in a healthy human being (Williams, n.d.), each which are around two microns in size (“Platelets on the Web,” n.d.). Platelets are blood cells which assist in the clotting of blood vessels, a process also known as hemostasis.

A Thermostable β-Glucuronidase Obtained by Directed Evolution as a Reporter Gene in Transgenic Plants

There are about fifty reporter genes that have proved useful in transgenic plant research, based on their efficiency, scientific applications and commercialization. Reporter genes serve as indicators to study transgenic events, for example by facilitating visual identification of successfully transformed entities in a large background of non-transformed material.
