The goal of this research is to prove that a certain gene in yeast cells provide code for a transport protein that carries sulfur, a necessary nutrient, into the cell. This was done by taking deficient yeast cells and transforming their genome by inserting the DNA that coded for these transport proteins. The purpose of
Neurodegenerative diseases are still widely misunderstood, but are believed to be caused by the production of β-amyloid peptides (Aβ). Single Chain Fragment Variables (scFv) antibodies can be used to eliminate Aβ, but are difficult to work with. These scFv antibodies can be transformed into Fragment Antigen Binding antibodies (Fab), which are more stable thus easier
Developing a less harsh method of nanoparticle production will make the process more sustainable and cost-effective.
