The effect of operational parameters on the fate of tetracycline resistant bacteria in biological wastewater treatment plants
The main focus of this research is to study the fate of antibiotic resistant organisms in biological treatment processes as a function of operation and antibiotic presence. Data generated as a part of this study are expected ...
Leukocyte selectin and integrin dependent adhesion under fluid flow
Cell rolling and adhesion are important features that regulate leukocyte trafficking in human vasculature. Various adhesion molecules belonging to the selectin, integrin and immunoglobulin gene superfamilies act in synergy ...
A constrained object approach to systems biology
Research has shown that all the information needed to build a detailed model of a cell, including the properties of all constituent components and their interconnectivity, is still not available. However, cells are subject ...
Stochastic modeling of tissue engineering scaffolds with heterogeneous porosity levels
In this thesis, the internal architecture of the scaffolds is optimized based on a given distribution and porosity level function. The discrete porosity levels are used to determine required expected number of pores for ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Efficient retroviral transduction of human epidermal stem cells using recombinant fibronectin
The epidermis is an attractive target for gene therapy because it is easily accessible and shows great potential as an ectopic site for protein delivery in vivo. Genetically modified epidermal keratinocytes are used to ...
Micromachined polymeric scaffold with neuron factor gradient for guided spiral ganglion neuron growth
Over 50 million people suffer from acquired hearing loss due to permanent damage to hair cells currently treatable by only cochlear implants. The damaged hair cell in turn causes the demise of spiral ganglion neuron, ...
A web-based modeling approach for tracking algal blooms in lower Great Lakes
The occurrence of algal blooms in the Great Lakes has been a growing concern over the past few decades, especially for toxic or harmful algal blooms (HABs). For the present work a general circulation model is used to help ...
Structure-property relationships in associating polymer solutions

High yield anthocyanin biosynthesis in metabolic engineering Escherichia coli
Anthcoyanins, the largest sub-group of flavonoids and a major group of plant pigments, impart the eye-catching hues to most flowers and fruits ranging from pink through red and purple to dark blue. They are widely distributed ...
