Communal properties such as robustness and division of labor are among the benefits to the organisms within a microbiome. Their interactions have been known to promote survival in otherwise unfavorable environments, but present obstacles to researchers across several fields. The greatest obstacles are identification of individual organisms and their specific contribution to the microbiome. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have made an automated device to separate and concentrate bacterial cells for analysis.Tue, 01 Nov 2016 09:05:23 GMTott@nd.edu End-to-End Path Characterization involving Wireless Network Hops, 19 Oct 2016 11:30:13 GMTott@nd.edu of self-assembly for inorganic nanowires in solution into films and yarns, 07 Oct 2016 06:16:39 GMTott@nd.edu Technique for Client-Side Passive Detection of WiFi Access Point Load (c) 2016, 28 Sep 2016 06:55:35 GMTott@nd.edu Mechanism for Conveying Residual Capacity at a Wireless Access Point, 28 Sep 2016 06:54:38 GMTott@nd.edu Recognition Based on Human Interpretable Features, 26 Aug 2016 12:50:34 GMTott@nd.edu electrophoresis instrumentation and method for forensic analysis of sexual assault evidence order to address the national backlog in processing sexual assault kits, a purified sample of male DNA must be selectively retrieved from a gynecological swab.

In current CMOS technology, this sub-threshold operation adds spatial-temporal noise on the pixel signal and gives rise to large dips in the signal-to-noise ratio. Novel transistor designs remove these undesired effects while keeping the crucial advantages of dynamic well capacity adjustment, i.e. large increase in dynamic range, simple operation, high performance unde...Thu, 23 Jun 2016 12:45:12 GMTott@nd.edu and Method for Image Resolution in Multiphoton Microscopy, 25 Feb 2016 09:30:48 GMTott@nd.edu Active Layered Double Hydroxide-Derived Cobalt Nano-Catalysts for Catalytic Water Treatment parity condition, that the reactivity ration between non-precious and precious metal catalysts must exceed their price ration, has been surpassed for cobalt, in comparison to the most active precious metal catalyst made of palladium, in the catalytic reduction of p-nitrophenol with borohydride. This is achieved by affixing CO nanoparticles on two-dimensional layered double oxide nanodisks through thermal phase transformation of cobalt-magnesium-aluminum layered double hydroxide precursors.

Diabetic wounds are refractory to healing due to the involvement of activated matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which remodel the tissue resulting in apoptosis. There are no readily available methods that identify active unregulated MMPs. With the use of a novel inhibitor-tethered resin that binds exclusively to the active forms of MMPs, coupled with proteomics, we quantified MMP-8 and MMP-9 in a mouse model of diabetic wounds. Topical treatment with a selective MMP-9 inhibitor led to acceleration of wound heal...Wed, 27 May 2015 07:11:07 GMTott@nd.edu Released from Mycobacterium Tuberculosis-Infected Cells as Diagnostic Markers of Disease, 27 May 2015 07:06:48 GMTott@nd.edu E as a Marker of Colon Cancer, 27 May 2015 07:03:06 GMTott@nd.edu Performance Near Infrared Photothermal Dyes, 27 May 2015 07:00:51 GMTott@nd.edu Nanoscale Thermocouples, 01 May 2015 05:56:30 GMTott@nd.edu Sensor and Probe, 13 Mar 2015 10:17:08 GMTott@nd.edu Plasma Anemometer for Hypersonic Mach Number Experiments, 12 Mar 2015 07:58:59 GMTott@nd.edu and Apparatus for AC Electrospray, 10 Mar 2015 14:44:48 GMTott@nd.edu Cartridge for Hydrogen Production Production of hydrogen gas in a fuel cell environment through copper based catalysts combined with noble metals.Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:08:59 GMTott@nd.edu Metrics, Sampling Schemes, and Detection Algorithms for Wideband Spectrum Sensing, 07 Jan 2015 12:56:28 GMTott@nd.edu Analytical Device for Quantifying Iodine in Fortified Salt A paper analytical device (PAD) for use in low-resource settings to test for the presence of iodine in salt.
