|Automated detection and control of controlled substances|
Joe Bradley, Ian Johns
Scitegrity, in conjunction with the Pistoia Alliance and a number of pharmaceutical companies, have developed Controlled Substances Squared to scan large chemical libraries (millions of compounds) and determine whether a compound is considered as controlled in a selected country.
|A pico-liter semi-automated screening method for morphological identification of microorganisms from environmental samples|
Ms. Charmi Chande, Dr. Ravindra Phadke
An economically feasible microfabrication protocol was developed for fabricating micro features used for bacterial analysis from environmental samples like soil and green sulfur bacteria sample. Organisms were classified in 11 morphotypes by using open source Image analysis software named CMEIAS and the standardized protocol was confirmed by viable count and pure culture study
|Population characterization of Brazilian isolates of Ceratocystis spp. using microsatellites|
Edson Luiz Furtado, Ana Carolina Firmino, Michael Mbenoun, Denise Nakada Nosaki, Ariska Van der Nest, Jolanda Roux, Irene Bernes, Mike Wingfield
The genus Ceratocystis includes several species of economically important plant pathogens and has a global distribution. In Brazil, species in the genus cause disease and death of hosts such as cacao, eucalypts and mango. This study aimed to characterize the population structure and diversity of isolates of Ceratocystis fimbriata sensu lato collected from diseased Eucalyptus species and to compare these to isolates from cacao, mango, teak, fig, rubber and atemoya.

|Transcription Factors to Classify Tumor Types and Subtypes|
Benjamin Otto 1,2, Kristin Klätschke 2, Thomas Streichert 3, Christoph Wagener 2, Genrich Tolstonog 4
Here we introduce the use of the unsupervised approach to identify transcription factors (TFs) that are specific for different tumor types.

|Microelectrodes for Microdroplet Motion Based On Electrowetting: A Review on Design|
Nurul Amziah Md Yunus, Noor Faezah Ismail, Seyed Amin Firouzeh, Zurina Zainal Abidin, Nasri Sulaiman and Izhal Abdul Halin.
The technology is growing rapidly whereby the researchers all over the world have discovered the smaller scale of technology. In micro-nanotechnology, the microfluidic manipulation become useful in many field of applications and one of the most advanced method is electrowetting. The observation and review on the design of microelectrode for droplet motion based on electrowetting with different shapes, sizes and fabrication regarding on the different application are hereby reported.
