Synthetic, dual-RNA-encoded Cas9 is used for precise homology-directed repair (HDR) gene engineering. Both short and long (GFP) inserts are covered.
|Phenotypic Cell-Based Screening of a High Content Imaging Cell Health Assay using the IN Cell Analyzer 2000|
Zaynab Neetoo-Isseljee, Chido Mpamhanga, David Tickle, Debra Taylor and Janet Brownlees
A High Content Imaging Cell Health assay has been established in-house for phenotypic High Content Screening using the IN Cell Analyzer 2000 and Genedata Screener analysis software. We describe the assay development and initial screening of the FDA set in HepG2 cells for validation of the assay.

CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing using synthetic crRNA:tracrRNA or sgRNA is highly efficient and easy to use. Synthetic crRNA:tracrRNA is uniquely suited to in vitro and in vivo applications, in particular, DNA-free approach with Cas9 mRNA. Chemical synthesis of guide RNAs allows accurate and rapid production of arrayed crRNA libraries for high-confidence, loss-of-function screens.
|The Case for CASE: Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation|
Modern CASE systems such as Structure Elucidator Suite provide the necessary capability accurately elucidate a novel chemical structure for complex molecules based on readily available NMR data sets. This allows organizations to avoid expensive, labor-intensive, and time-consuming synthetic efforts.
|A Unified Software Platform for Laboratory Informatics|
Graham A. McGibbon, Hans de Bie, David Hardy, Ryan Sasaki, Patrick Wheeler, Carol Preisig
Reported here are capabilities in automated workflows involving analytical data with chemical structures. Specifically described is automated homogenization of data from a set of instruments, including NMR structure verification, as one solution.

T. Pardy(a); N. Sleptsuk(a); M. Min(a); J. Ojarand(a); T. Lakspere(a,b); K. Palm(b)
We present results in rapid solution impedance spectroscopy to detect protein interactions (antibody-antigen) in human serum. Two different serum-antibody mixtures are measured in cuvettes, interfaced with screen-printed electrodes to determine whether the experimental setup can detect differences in composition.
|Advanced Microfluidic Mixing Device for the Study of Macromolecule Dynamics|
Shubha Jain, F. Azam, Dr. H. N. Unni
We have developed and characterized a micro-fluidic mixer to study the macro-molecule dynamics such as kinetics of protein folding, DNA sequencing, single molecule study and detection etc. on a micro-second timescale. Numerical simulation has been performed to analyse the study of mixing performance of micro-fluidics channel.
|Analysis of Terpenes Using Gas Chromatography with Vacuum Ultraviolet |
Changling Qiu, Jonathan Smuts, Phillip Walsh, and Kevin A. Schug
The VUV absorption spectra for different terpenes were distinctive and differentiable. GC-VUV demonstrated the capabilities for qualitative and quantitative analysis of terpenes in turpertine mixtures. Chromatographic coeluting signals can be deconvolved by the VUV data analysis software.
|Assessing Diversity in Cassava through the Application of Metabolomics|
Margit Drapala, Elisabete Carvalhoa, Laura Perez-Fonsa, Elliott Pricea, L. Augusto Becerra Lopez-Lavalleb, Paul D. Frasera
In the present study metabolomic platforms have been established for Cassava and used to assess the biodiversity present in Cassava germplasm collections and elucidate underlying biochemical mechanisms associated with traits of interest.
