Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow Anna Simon, PhD, publishes: Exploiting the conformational-selection mechanism to control the kinetics of a "smart" DNA hydrogel

  • Friday, April 27, 2018

Learn more about what 2017 AOB Postdoc Anna Simon (University of Texas Austin) has been working on: ABSTRACT The sequence-specific hybridization and molecular recognition properties of DNA support the construction of stimulus-responsive hydrogels with precisely controlled crosslink geometry. Here we show that, as predicted by the conformational selection mechanism, the response kinetics of such a hydrogel can be tuned over orders of magnitude by modulating the thermodynami ..

Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow Elena Schroeter, PhD, publishes: A Comparison of Common Mass Spectrometry Approaches for Paleoproteomics

  • Thursday, February 15, 2018

Learn more about what 2017 AOB Postdoc Elena Schroeter (North Carolina State University) has been working on: ABSTRACT The last two decades have seen a broad diversity of methods used to identify and/or characterize proteins in the archeological and paleontological record. Of these, mass spectrometry has opened an unprecedented window into the proteomes of the past, providing protein sequence data from long extinct animals as well as historical and prehistorical artifacts. Thus ..
