|The Role of microRNAs in Memory Consolidation in Lymnaea|
György Kemenes1, Dimitris Vavoulis2, Sergei Korneev1
In this study we investigated the temporal dynamics of the post-training expression of miRNAs in the ‘learning ganglia’ of Lymnaea.
|Microelectrode For Microdroplet Activity: A Survey on Design|
Noor Faezah Ismail, Nasri Sulaiman and Nurul Amziah Md Yunus
Electrowetting basic operation is by having the microdroplet activity based on the electric field generated from the active microelectrodes that are designed and fabricated on the glass or pcb substrate. The design of the microelectrode can affect the result of the microdroplet movement, direction, size and etc. In this work, a few comparisons on the effectiveness from different electrode shapes have been made.
|Translational Research of oral Neural Crest-Derived Stem Cells (oNCSCs) in Regenerative Dentistry|
Grimm W.-D1,2,4, S. N. Alekseenko9, D. V. Bobryshev1, W. Duncan11, B. Giesenhagen3, E. Gubareva9, Sema S. Hakki6, O.V. Pershina7, I. Schau4, S. V. Sirak1, E.G. Skurikhin7, A. A. Sletov1, F. Witte10, G. Varga8, O. V. Vladimirova1, M.A. Vukovic2, D. Widera5
In this review poster, we summarize current knowledge on the oral neural crest-derived stem cell populations (oNCSCs) and discuss their potential in regenerative periodontology as a part of regenerative dentistry.
|Different Pathways of Regenerative Medicine|
Clemens Heyder, Daniela Weber
Altough regenerative medicine is rapidly developing there is neither a technical definition nor a common use in practice. The aim of this study is to draw the line at the limits of regeneration and medicine in order to figure out a proper understanding of regenerative medicine. Furthermore, the analysis reveals a prospering future. It has shown that regenerative medicine technologies are used for a variety of therapeutic applications.
|Building a digital pathology ecosystem for education and research|
Yves Sucaet, Silke Smeets, Stijn Piessens, Sabrina D'Haese, Chris Groven, Wim Waelput, Peter In't Veld
We wanted to build a core digital pathology infrastructure to support different use cases. Various images platforms needed to be accessible through a single access point, and support different user profiles.
|Sample Stabilization and Purification Devices for Superior Forensic DNA Storage, Purification and Profiling|
Geoffrey Routh,& Bassam El-Fahmawi
The tools used for evidentiary sample collection are often challenged in criminal cases. Maintaining the integrity of evidentiary samples continues to be a major challenge - especially when samples stay in transit during transportation where sample integrity is highly compromised. Thus, there is a crucial need for a cost-effective, efficient DNA collection and storage system that maintain sample integrity from collection until processing, while providing a means to ensure proper chain of custody
|Development of a nucleic acid-based amplification test as point-of-care rapid test detecting sexually-transmitted diseases for home-care|
Vicky Tröger, Anja Scherber, Dirk Kuhlmeier, Indrek Tulp, Marko Lehes, Steffen Howitz, Toni Bohatzsch, Tamas Pardy
The main problem of early diagnosis of STI is the lack of suitable systems. Therefore a quick home test is needed. In this poster, a microfluidic cartridge combining an isothermal amplification with detection on a lateral flow strip is presented.
|Design considerations for highly specific and efficient synthetic crRNA molecules|
Anja van Brabant Smith, Emily M. Anderson, Shawn McClelland, Elena Maksimova, Tyler Reed, Steve Lenger, Žaklina Strezoska, Hidevaldo Machado Dharmacon, part of GE Healthcare, 2650 Crescent Drive, Suite #100, Lafayette, CO 80026, US
An overview of our rational design algorithm for picking highly functional crRNA sequences in combination with comprehensive specificity analysis.
|A New Dual Luciferase Assay Using NanoLuc® Enables a Second Generation Coincidence Reporter System to Reduce False Hits in HTS Poster|
Christopher Eggers, Samuel Hasson, Brock Binkowski, Matt Robers, James Unch, Braeden Butler, , Keith Wood, James Inglese and Frank Fan
Luciferase-based reporter-gene assays remain a cornerstone of high-throughput screening of compounds because of their high sensitivity and dynamic range. However, a substantial number of non-relevant hits can be generated due to direct interaction of compounds with the luciferase reporter.
