AbstractAn important consideration in protein crystallization screening is the limited availability of protein which makes the miniaturization of these experiments a necessity. Considerations such as dispense speed, protein concentration, protein/screening agent drop ratios, evaporation, etc. all need to be carefully analyzed when designing the crystallization experiment.
The Honeybee 963™ enables rapid, precise and accurate dispensing of nanoliter (nl) volumes of screening and protein solutions. Strategies for experimental design will be discussed within the framework of the dispensing technologies that are utilized in the Honeybee 963.
The ability to dispense up to three different proteins and/or protein concentrations coupled with the 96 tip dispensing head for screening solutions ensures evaporation is kept to a minimum and that protein usage is conserved.
Applications of chemically modified synthetic guide RNA for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editingPoster
Our results indicate that MS modifications are required for experiments with co-electroporation of Cas9 mRNA and synthetic gRNA, yet have no impact on editing efficiency when delivered with lipid-based transfection reagents.READ MORE
Functional Analysis of RAD51B and RAD23B SNPs using Circular Chromosome Conformation Capture (4C) in Human Prostate Cell LinesPoster
The aim of this study is to understand the mechanism behind the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), lying in non-coding regions near or within RAD51B and RAD23B, and prostate cancer risk by analysing their interactions with the whole genome using Circular Chromosome Conformation Capture (4C).READ MORE
