    Screening Method for CRISPR/Cas9 Inhibition of a Human DNA Virus: Herpes Simplex Virus
    [Abstract] The efficiency of cleavage of individual CRISPR/Cas9-sgRNAs remains difficult to predict based on the CRISPR target sequence alone. Different intracellular environments (dependent on cell type or cell cycle state for example) may affect sgRNA efficiency by altering accessibility of genomic DNA through DNA modifications such as epigenetic marks and ...
    Safe DNA-extraction Protocol Suitable for Studying Tree-fungus Interactions
    Authors:  Susanna Keriö, Eeva Terhonen and Jared M. LeBoldus, date: 06/05/2020, view: 1431, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] We present a safe and low-cost method suitable for DNA extraction from mycelium and tree tissue samples. After sample preparation, the extraction takes about 60 min. Method performance was tested by extracting DNA from various tree tissue samples and from mycelium grown on solid and liquid media. DNA was extracted from juvenile and mature host ...
    Viral Double-Stranded RNA Detection by DNase I and Nuclease S1 digestions in Leishmania parasites
    Authors:  Nathalie Isorce and Nicolas Fasel, date: 05/05/2020, view: 703, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Many RNA viruses are found in protozoan parasites. They can be responsible for more serious pathology or treatment failure. For the detection of viral double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), sequence-dependent and -independent methods are available, such as quantitative real-time PCR and immunofluorescence, dot blot, ELISA or sequencing. The technique ...
    Solid Phase PCR on 3D Microstructure ArrayChip for Pathogen Detection Application
    Authors:  Krishna Kant and Tien Anh Ngo, date: 08/05/2019, view: 1819, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Advanced free angle photolithography (FAPL) is presented for making 3D supercritical angle fluorescence (SAF) microstructures and transfer them on to polymeric chips using injection molding technique for low-cost microfluidic devices embedded with optical sensing structures. A solid phase polymerase chain reaction (SP-PCR) is used as model ...
