Design of artificial genetic networks to regulate the biosynthesis of polyhydroxyalkanoate copolymers with desirable structures
The design of artificial genetic networks constitutes a powerful tool to regulate cellular physiology. Simple regulatory structures comprised of a few interacting genes can be assembled to engineer desirable phenotypes and ...
Fundamental mechanisms of coal pyrolysis and char combustion
Coal pyrolysis and combustion have been systematically investigated at high temperatures where external and intraparticle transfer limitations become important. A thermogravimetric reactor equipped with in-situ video imaging ...
Change in cell motility and metabolism following culture under low shear conditions
Recent studies suggest that the human immune system, and in particular lymphocyte function, may be suppressed during space flight. However, the mechanisms by which mechanical forces affect the function of immune cells are ...
Pyrolytic Remediation of Soils Contaminated with Heavy Petroleum
Onshore spills of crude oil and petrochemicals from stationary facilities or pipelines are common and can cause serious environmental problems. Current technologies for remediating soils contaminated with heavy petroleum ...
