UNAM’s real-time droplet monitoring system iDM helps to synthesize monodisperse micro/nanoparticles

UNAM’s real-time droplet monitoring system iDM helps to synthesize monodisperse micro/nanoparticles

Droplet-based systems have proven themselves as a major sub-category of microfluidics thanks to their ability to encapsulate the fluid-of-interest into segmented droplets in a carrying fluid. Microdroplet systems can be used in a vast range of applications from drug delivery and discovery to cellular studies, material synthesis, and reaction kinetics. An important question left open [...]
Biomcomputation Circuits to Pattern Protein Nanomaterials

Biomcomputation Circuits to Pattern Protein Nanomaterials

Synthetic Biosystems Laboratory (SBL) at UNAM led by Dr. Urartu Özgür Şafak Şeker has been utilizing the synthetic biology tools to program cells for innovative applications. Specifically, their research involves for programming bacteria to carry out logic operations and computations to deliver therapeutically important proteins in disease conditions or controlling assembly of nanobiomaterials.   The [...]
