Back to the drawing board

In our meeting with Prof. van der Meer and Drs. Frederic Truffer and Alessandro Crespi, we received critical input on our current prototype to try to get a fluorescence signal above the background noise. 313 more words


Designing a database for environmental data

One of the main goals of bio-design for the real-world is to enable large-scale sharing of environmental data gathered by citizen scientists. We envision in particular that the collected data could be visualized on a geographical map. 1,179 more words


eGFP or not to eGFP

One of the ways to improve the signal to noise ratio of the reporter fluorescence, is to have a brighter (proportional to the extinction coefficient x quantum yield), more stable protein with a larger difference between the peak excitation and the emission wavelengths ( 463 more words
