Optimization of a Vacuum Ultraviolet Photoionization source for GC used with a High Resolution TOFMS

Poster

-Tune solution allows optimization of ion source parameters for
both proton transfer and direct ionization
-Independent ionization processes exist for M+ and MH+
-Optimizing for dopant signal intensity yields inferior results
-Degree of fragmentation remains relatively constant over a
range of source conditions

Functional Analysis of RAD51B and RAD23B SNPs using Circular Chromosome Conformation Capture (4C) in Human Prostate Cell Lines

Poster

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).

New Method That Should Enhance the Discovery of New Drugs and the Study of Proteins

A team of scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have developed a new method that enhances the discovery of new drugs and the study of proteins. The new method enables researchers to quickly find small molecules that bind to hundreds of thousands of proteins in their native cellular environment.
